Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has told Chelsea that he wants to leave the club. Lukaku has been out of favour since joining the London side, but impressed in two loan spells with West Brom and Everton.
Diego Costa is likely to move to Stamford Bridge this summer and may be followed by another top striker as Jose Mourinho looks to improve his goalscoring options.
“You know Chelsea, every year they buy a new top striker. I remember me coming into the dressing room last year and seeing Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba and going, ‘Whoah! What’s happening here?’
“But no problem. Many clubs are interested in me. At this stage, I have to look to myself. I have to play a good World Cup. That’s very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer. And I must be one of them. Chelsea know my point of view.”
Atletico Madrid are said to be the most interested for Lukaku, as they look for a replacement for the departing Costa. Considering his predecessors will include Costa, Falcao and Sergio Aguero, it wouldn’t be a bad move to make.
