Romelu Lukaku to face competition at “dream team” Chelsea
Belgium international for a fee of £19 million on
a long –term five year deal. Recent reports reveal the player is currently at the Cobham training ground undergoing the medical, after which he can be revealed to the press as a Chelsea player.
The player has been a supporter since he was younger and made it very clear he wanted to move to Stamford Bridge while still at Anderlecht. The Belgian side initially rejected the Blues’ first bid of £18 million for Lukaku, but forced to accept their
improved second bid after insistence from the young forward. Lukaku was ecstatic about his move to the English Premier League outfit and made his feelings public on his official Twitter account.
Lukaku was asked what he liked most about the club, and he replied:
“The fans, the players.. It’s just my dream team.”
He added:
“I think I am entering a team full of experienced guys and winners. And I’m very happy about that.”
While Lukaku was easily the first choice striker at Anderlecht, the youngster will face competition at the Bridge in the form of Along with the aforementioned strikers, the
likes of and Gael Kakuta are also proven experts at playing as second strikers and could go on to present the Belgium international with competition for a place in the squad.
However, the player doesn’t seem to be worried about finding a place in the starting XI. He has more than proved himself with the national team and Anderlecht and has an impressive goal tally with both country and club. After two years of playing
for the Belgium under-21 international side, Lukaku was promoted to the senior squad and has gone on to make 10 appearances for them so far and has scored two goals.
After graduating from the Anderlecht youth academy in 2009, Lukaku made his senior debut in the 2009-2010 season. It didn’t take the powerful striker long to establish himself as the first choice striker as he went on to make 45 appearances in all competitions
in his first season, scoring 19 goals and providing 7 assists. His second season was similar to his first, with 50 appearances, 20 goals and 7 assists.
However, the Premier League will surely provide a tougher challenge for the Belgian striker, but all that will undoubtedly help towards making him into a better player. At Chelsea, Lukaku has the opportunity of learning from the best and with Drogba, Anelka
and Malouda approaching the end of their careers and Kalou most likely heading towards an exit, the 18-year-old could very well go on to be first choice striker in the upcoming seasons.
