Fans told £154 million powerhouse ‘more likely’ to sign for Chelsea over Romelu Lukaku
Jermaine Jenas believes Chelsea are more likely to sign Erling Haaland than Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku during this summer’s transfer window.
With the Blues looking to improve the squad and add a number of players to the side, there has been alot of speculation in the media which have suggested that Chelsea are interested in a deal for Haaland and Lukaku.
Haaland is regarded as one of the finest strikers in world football and has been linked with all the major clubs around Europe, while Lukaku had an amazing season with Inter Milan and helped the squad win that Seria A title for the first time in 11 seasons.
But despite the rumours that Lukaku is the number one transfer target for Chelsea, Jenas has opened up and claimed that the board are much more likely to sign Haaland from Dortmund this coming window.
Is [Romelu] Lukaku the one? I don’t think Chelsea go back very much with players,’ Jenas was quoted on the Metro
‘I think they will go younger and go with Haaland. I think they may go for it this year.
‘They know they are probably the only ones along with Man City or PSG that can move that quick and that fast to make it happen. If they get Haaland, they will compete for the league, no doubt.’
There is no doubt that Chelsea need to add another striker to the squad in the summer, so either one of these two players would be a massive signing for the club. But considering Lukaku doesnt want to come back to the Premier League, we totally agree with Jenas on this one
