The Belgium could return to Chelsea if Roma don’t retain the striker

Romelu Lukaku, a striker, has been questioned by Chelsea’s manager Mauricio Pochettino on his future and whether he would rejoin the team after his loan period expires this summer.

Although Lukaku has spent the last two seasons on loan, he is still a Chelsea striker, despite the numerous reports in recent months suggesting that a new striker will likely be Chelsea’s top priority for a summer transfer window.

Halfway through the campaign, Lukaku had a falling out with Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, and he gave that famous interview. Many supporters are unlikely to allow him to return to the club because of how he irritated them. Would Pochettino, nevertheless, welcome him back?

He’s a Chelsea player, so for sure we will pay attention,” Pochettino replied when asked about Lukaku. It’s an option. But still, we did not take any decision.”

It would appear that he would.

More remarks under embargo from the Blues manager’s pre-match news conference against Arsenal late last night were made public, and Lukaku’s future was raised.

Is it possible for the impossibly unlikely to occur? Could Lukaku, a player who seemed to have lost interest in the Blues and never wanted to play for them again, decide to come back and don the Blues jersey? I still find it really hard to believe.

There is still a complete lack of a number nine for Chelsea. Although Nicolas Jackson is playing well, this team only has nine players, and if you want to compete at the highest level once more, you certainly need two forwards.

The Blues also lack a striker who can lead the line and serve as a focal point—a target man profile. Does Lukaku hold the key? To put it mildly, I would be rather sceptical.

According to a Calciomercato story, Roma is looking for a way to sign Lukaku without having to pay the £37 million upfront. They may make an offer for Abraham. The 26-year-old, who had several successful loan stints away from Stamford Bridge, scored 30 goals in his first season and a half at Chelsea.
