The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern desperately want their side to sign a new forward this summer, and for a lot of supporters, Romelu Lukaku is the best option…
Proven in the Premier League, the Belgian would be able to immediately come in and do a job for the Blues, with many supporters in the pub getting excited every time they hear a mention of his name.
The latest line on the links between Lukaku and Chelsea, then, unsurprisingly drew quite a seismic reaction from the fans in the pub, with journalist Tancredi Palmieri revealing on Twitter that the Blues have apparently reached an agreement in principle with Romelu Lukaku over a summer move. Significantly, the Blues still need to negotiate with Everton – but it would appear as though both Chelsea and the striker are keen to get this deal done.

After several weeks of relative calm with regards to rumours of the transfer, it appears as though Chelsea are beginning to make things happen with regards to this deal. Of course, it will come as no surprise to learn of Chelsea’s interest, with the Blues desperate for a new forward this summer.
Diego Costa has, indeed, been a great option for the Blues in recent years, but with his form stuttering towards the end of last season and the return of the Champions League next year, Chelsea really need a bit more depth in that role.
The Chelsea fans in the pub can hardly contain their excitement.
