The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Romelu Lukaku to join the club this summer…
It would appear as though they might get their wish, too, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Chelsea have progressed in their pursuit of the striker – with the two clubs now apparently ‘likely’ to come to an agreement for the Belgian.
This is huge news for the club, as it would appear as though Chelsea are finally edging closer to the signing of Lukaku. He has, of course, been in remarkable form this season for Everton, picking up an astonishing 24 goals so far this year.
Powerful, prolific and quick, Lukaku is a player that has been man-made for the Premier League, and it is clear now that Chelsea made a huge mistake letting him go under Jose Mourinho.
Lukaku’s arrival could, of course, spell the end of Diego Costa’s time in London, with the Spaniard unlikely to be happy to play second-fiddle to Lukaku.
Antonio Conte will have a tough job on his hands this summer as he looks to build his dream team, but he will be hoping that Lukaku is the first signing of many…
