Liverpool thwarted as Chelsea reject Reds’ £19m bid

lukakuThe Daily Star seem to have punters in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with huge interest after their claim about Blues star Romelu Lukaku.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly rejected a £19 million bid for Lukaku from Liverpool, who of course finished above Chelsea last season in an enthralling title race.

Now it seems that they are the second club on Merseyside to register an interest for the player – but Chelsea are not biting.

Lukaku has various other options and as one of our punters notes, we still think there could be a chance for him at Stamford Bridge should Didier Drogba return as a player /coach.

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers are desperate to land another forward after seeing Luis Suarez depart for Barcelona and want a proven forward who they know can score at the top level and take their title bid one step further this season.

Chelsea fans. Would selling Lukaku to a side who rival you for the title be a massive mistake or is Lukaku a second rate forward who could be a Torres-like double agent? Let us know your thoughts below.
