Several rumours have appeared over the course of the last 24 hours linking Chelsea’s Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku to Spurs. Looking at the 19 year olds’ overall record, it could be a good fit for the club but will it really happen?
Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 but has only played twelve times for the club and has so far failed to get on the scoresheet. At West Brom however, he has been more impressive, scoring thirteen times in 26 games and while there is a penalty or two on that list, it’s not a bad return in a mid table club.
The striker also returned a ratio approaching a goal every other game so there is huge potential here. Lukaku would also be made very welcome in a side containing international team mates Moussa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen.
However, is it really likely that Chelsea would sell any player to one of their main rivals – even if he is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge?
