Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Romelu Lukaku of Chelsea is interested in being loaned to La Liga champion Barcelona during this summer’s transfer window.
The seasoned Belgian player is rumoured to be leaving the club this summer because he has lost favour at Stamford Bridge.
However, the 30-year-old’s situation does not seem to be nearing a critical point with only a few days remaining until the transfer window closes. His market value is only about €40 million right now.
Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, and Inter Milan have all been mentioned as potential destinations for Lukaku.
Clubs in Saudi Arabia are also interested, but the seasoned striker is not, at least not now, eager to relocate there.
Time is running out, and because Lukaku is no longer supported by Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea must decide what to do with their seasoned striker.
According to earlier today’s reports, if everything else fails, the Blues are open to leaving on a loan. It seems that making such a step would attract potential purchasers.
Barcelona wants to improve on a team that won the title the previous year and might use some help in the attack.
One of the best forwards in football is Robert Lewandowski. However, there aren’t many trustworthy options that can launch right away if necessary.
As a target man who uses his physicality, Lukaku is more of a target man than Lewandowski is.
Despite being the polar opposite of the football Barcelona plays, he might provide them an interestingly crude but successful backup strategy.
French powerhouse PSG is also interested in Lukaku. However, whether they can finalise the Randal Kolo Muani deal will determine whether they make a move.
The effort to get the Belgian likely pick up momentum in the upcoming days with AS Roma
Detractors of Lukaku’s ability have not been won over by his recent clutch displays for Inter Milan and Belgium.
A parting of the ways would be the best course of action for everyone since his time at Chelsea was essentially over.
