Big striker news from ITK Fabrizio Romano


Lukaku in his Everton days

David Moyes us unlikely to have second thoughts on Chelse’a on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku come next summer’s winter window.

The club let it be known in the summer that they had been monitoring the player who is now in his second loan spell with Roma but that David Moyes gave the possible switch a thumbs down.

Now  Fabrizo Romano claims to have gathered important information on the striker’s position at Chelsea next summer.

Writing in his Daily Briefing he claims there is an agreement in place for him to be made available for a fee of around £37m.

He adds the Blues don’t want to spend another whole summer negotiating for him and that’s why they have decided to put that price on him with the final destination being decided by Lukaku.

Chelsea will have little chance of getting such a fee for the player as he will be 31 years old in May.
