Insight provided into Chelsea’s stance on signing Romelu Lukaku this summer

Chelsea eyeing a striker

One of Chelsea’s main priorities this summer has seemingly been the addition of a centre-forward.

The Blues’ main issue in 2020/21 was their lack of goals, with Jorginho having finished the Premier League campaign as their top scorer with just seven strikes.

The capital outfit, in turn, have been attempting to address the issue, amid assurances that signing a striker is the overriding priority at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Two of the main names to have been linked thus far have been Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, and Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku to Chelsea?

And whilst those bids have evidently been knocked back, Chelsea have not yet given up hope of signing their former striker over the coming weeks:

The indications at the moment are that Chelsea haven’t given up, even though it’s clearly a deal which will be difficult to complete at this late stage of the market.
