Chelsea are open to the prospect of a stunning double deal worth over £100million for Premier League stars Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.

Lukaku is the top scorer in the Premier League, with 21 goals, as well as supplied some of supports over recent weeks as Everton went into contention for a European spot. The Belgian forward scored four in March, netting in a 3-2 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring and assisting in a 3-0 home win over West Bromwich Albion and notching a brace in a 4-0 triumph over Hull City.

They included Bournemouth pair Joshua King and Artur Boruc, Southampton winger Nathan Redmond, Crystal Palace loanee Mamadou Sakho and Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum. "It gives me another boost".

"I'm playing well at the minute and the team is doing really well as well so I think this is for all my teammates, the staff here and the Belgium national team for helping me throughout this journey".

Howe wins the manager award for the first time after previously relegation haunted Bournemouth won two of their three games this month, drawing the other away to Manchester United.

"It feels really good", said Howe.

Howe saw off competition from Sam Allardyce, Antonio Conte, Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Craig Shakespeare.
