ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Chelsea willing to sell their centre forward for £38 million

Wright Chelsea's Potter

Chelsea are currently alleged to have broken the fairplay rules. Due to this, the blues need to earn a profit before they can spend. That means they need to sell their players before they sign some new ones this summer. The reports have shown that the blues are going to put many of their first team players on sale. The recent news is that Chelsea are also going to part way with their centre forward.

Romelu Lukaku who is currently on loan to AS Roma seems to exit Stamford bridge at the end of the season. Lukaku had two spells with the blues. In his first spell he was mostly spent on loan to other English sides. He then left Stamford bridge for Everton where he previously played on loan. Chelsea signed Lukaku back in 2021 after his very good years at Inter Milan. The Blues payed £97.5 million to bring the Belgian striker back to Premier League. However this move didn’t prove to be worthy as the striker had a very bad return season with the Blues.

Chelsea decided to send Lukaku back to Inter Milan on loan in 2022. In 2023 he was again sent on loan to AS Roma. But this time the club wants to part way with Belgian striker. Chelsea are looking for £38 million for Lukaku. The Blues have asked AS Roma about permanent move for Lukaku and have also made clear that they will hear an offer for him from any club.

Who will be main Centre Forward at Chelsea

Currently Chelsea are using Nicolas Jackson as their striker. Jackson has managed to reach double figures in premier league this season but has not been consistent. Christopher Nkunku has been mostly injured this season. With Lukaku leaving permanently, there seems to be opening in striker position. The Blues have already been linked to Victor Osimhen and Ivan Toney. According to The Chelsea Chronicle, the blues also have been reported in asking Napoli about swap deal between Lukaku and Osimhen. The summer transfer window promises to prove crucial for Chelsea.
