Big news as superstar powerhouse is now keen to complete summer Chelsea move
There has been some reports which have now claimed that Romelu Lukaku is now keen to make a move back to Chelsea this summer
Lukaku, 28, has been heavily linked to a Stamford Bridge attack, as manager Thomas Tuchel looks to add firepower upfront to what was a blunt Blues attack last season.
The Belgian is one of three world-class options who are under serious consideration by the Chelsea hierarchy ahead of a potential swoop this summer, with Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland the other two linked with the club
Lukaku is a player that has firmly established himself as one of the very best strikers over in Seria A since his move from Manchester United just a few seasons ago and even helped the Italians to that title last summer
It has been reported over the past few days that Chelsea will have to pay a massive £102 million to secure the services of Lukaku this summer window, but Chelsea are reportedly prepared to pay that
Now reports on the TalkSport website have claimed that Lukaku is very much open to the idea of making a move back to Chelsea this summer, as he wants to prove that he does have the ability to leave that Blues attack.
However, amid the speculation that Chelsea are keen on a move for Lukaku, Pundit Steven Nicol has opened up and urged the Chelsea board not to make a move for Lukaku as he is not the finisher that the club need.
Speaking to ESPN FC, Nicol recently said: “Chelsea are in a position now where if they sign a centre-forward, he has to be a natural finisher. That’s the one thing they’re missing.
“As many goals as Lukaku has, he’s not a natural finisher. He has been at Chelsea twice before.”
Lukaku has flourished over in Italy over the past few seasons as that League is made for him, but he would struggle to make that impact at Chelsea if he made a move back as he is not the type of player that Tuchel would like
He will probably stay put, and that is probably the best thing for him
