Chelsea fans look slightly confused here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim the Blues are set to keep Romelu Lukaku at the club – but another forward could well be leaving.
Everton were set to land Lukaku on a permanent deal but the Blues are willing to allow Lukaku the chance to break though into the first team after seeing Demba Ba leave and only bringing in Diego Costa.
Jose Mourinho has claimed his summer dealings are done and as one of our punters notes, this could well keep the door open for Lukaku.
That, as we discuss over the pool table, could well open the door for another move with Roberto Martinez considering asking for Christian Atsu on loan after being impressed by the 22-year-old Ghanaian during the World Cup.
We think that could well be a great deal, not only for Chelsea with the young forward getting some vital first team experience in the Premier League, but also for Everton, who could again profit from the loan system.
Chelsea fans. Do you think Mourinho will keep Lukaku after concluding his transfer business for the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
