For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, Romelu Lukaku is a pretty decent player to be targeting this summer…
There is a genuine need at Stamford Bridge for a bit of additional offensive depth, and for many in the pub – Lukaku is the perfect answer. Strong, quick, powerful, prolific – he has all the traits of a top striker. Chelsea have been linked in recent weeks.
Any deal regarding the Belgian is likely to drag on this summer, given that he will be in-demand given his current form, but for Chelsea – Conte really should be going all out for the Belgian.
They likely won’t be the only club keen, though. Indeed, the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see him replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whilst many Evertonians haven’t given up hope of him staying.
The latest update on the matter, provided by Ronald Koeman, is that Lukaku won’t be signing a new contract at Everton – and that has left the whole Tavern talking.
Indeed, it is a very similar story on Twitter – with Everton, Man Utd and Chelsea fans all having their say on where Lukaku could go…
Its pretty much certain that Lukaku is off in summer so hopefully everyone can just move on and look forward. Barkley can do one too

Feel sorry for the team that ends up buying Lukaku. Huge asking price and comes with a Diva attitude

@TalkToff Lukaku bigger than your club

Lukaku is GREAT player for clubs like West Brom & Everton.
Lukaku will be mediocre for top clubs. NEVER worldclass.

I'd love to see Lukaku at OT. United should make it happen.

Will be fairly gutted when we sign Lukaku and not Belotti tbh, Belotti the far superior player all round

Expecting both of them to be gone now. Certainly reads like Barkley will reject the offer & almost certainly that Lukaku will. Big summer

Ronald Koeman on Romelu Lukaku: "He told me he won't sign a new contract."

Looks like Lukaku to Chelsea is inevitable. How much will Everton fetch ?
