The Telegraph‘s Matt Law has suggested that Chelsea could look to re-sign Romelu Lukaku this summer if they are unable to recruit Erling Haaland.
The Blues acquired Timo Werner from RB Leipzig last summer, but despite a recent resurgence under Thomas Tuchel, it doesn’t look as though the German is going to be the man to lead Chelsea’s line. If anything, he has looked more effective coming in from the left.
With Olivier Giroud’s contract up in the summer and Tammy Abraham likely still unsure if has has an admirer in Tuchel or not, it would be no surprise to see Chelsea move for another striker this summer. As The Telegraph’s Matt Law writes, Erling Haaland is an option.
The difficulty is that the Borussia Dortmund striker is coveted by pretty much every club on the planet, meaning it would take some serious convincing from Chelsea for him to end up at Stamford Bridge – but fear not, Blues fans, because it looks as though there’s a plan B.
Writing for the Telegraph, reputable sports reporter Matt Law explains how, should Haaland prove to be unobtainable, Chelsea will be forced to look at alternative targets. That could see them look to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
Lukaku was part of the Chelsea squad that won the Champions League back in 2012, but never scored a goal for the club. Could a return be on the cards this coming summer? We’ll have to wait and see, but considering the form he’s been in this term, Chelsea fans ought to be getting excited.
