Chelsea set to intensify talks to sell Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea are looking to get Romelu Lukaku off their books this summer, and they will intensify talks to sell the Belgian striker.

Romelu Lukaku was on loan at AS Roma last season, and he was quite impressive for them. He scored 21 goals across all competitions, and Chelsea are now accelerating talks to get rid of him this summer, according to Give Me Sport.

The Belgian international has been linked with multiple clubs, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. He does not have a future at Chelsea, and the Blues want to get him off their wage bill as well.

The 30-year-old will not want to return to his parent club this summer, and a permanent move to Italy would be ideal for him. The player seems to be enjoying his football in Serie A, and it remains to be seen where he ends up. He has been linked with clubs like AC Milan.

The Rossoneri could use attacking reinforcements this summer after Olivier Giroud’s departure, and Lukaku is a proven performer. He could prove to be the ideal acquisition for them. However, Chelsea will have to be reasonable with their transfer demands for the move to go through.

Lukaku has been linked with Manchester United

Lukaku has been linked with a shock return to Manchester United as well. The Red Devils need an experienced attacker this summer who can mentor Rasmus Hojlund and support him. Lukaku certainly fits the profile, but he had an underwhelming spell Old Trafford in the past, and a return might not be appealing for him. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.

The striker currently earns £200,000 per week at Chelsea, and the Blues will look to free up their wages this summer. Getting rid of the Belgian striker will allow them to bring in their own signings.

Lukaku is at the peak of his powers, and he could prove to be a quality addition for most clubs. The veteran striker has the quality to play for the biggest clubs in the world, and he will be hoping to join a team capable of winning major trophies. Meanwhile, Chelsea need to bring a reliable goalscorer who can lead the line for them and find the back of the net consistently.
