The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to get very excited for the summer ahead…
On the back of an extremely successful season, with another trophy potentially still on the way, Antonio Conte will be expected to repeat his remarkable feats from this year in the next campaign.
Undoubtedly, for this to be the case, he is going to need some extra firepower – and it appears as though he could find that in the shape of Romelu Lukaku. According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea are set to up their approach for the striker next month – and it is apparently his homegrown status that has placed him above Alvaro Morata in Chelsea’s transfer pursuit.
To be honest, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for Lukaku to join the club, and his homegrown status is the least of their concerns. Lukaku’s goal scoring record this year has been just remarkable, and it has left the Blues in the pub dreaming of a reunion with the Belgian.
Whilst Diego Costa has looked lazy and poor in recent months, Lukaku has looked energetic and determined – and that is exactly what the fans in the pub want to see on the field.
Our landlord thinks that a move for Lukaku will be expensive, but if Chelsea can land him, they could be deadly next year – with or without Diego Costa.
