Chelsea Must Upgrade On Diego Costa And Romelu Lukaku Is Their Man
The Spaniard has struggled to make a significant impact barring the Southampton game, since a mega money offer from China was rejected by Chelsea.
Lukaku would likely offer more to Chelsea than Costa, who at times feels like he is being forced to play at the club.
The Everton talisman is currently topping the Premier League goal scoring charts, having scored 24 goals so far this season – five more than Costa.
Lukaku has also rejected a contract extension offer from the Toffees as he looks to force a move away from the club.
The Belgian international has also told his pals that he feels he has some unfinished business at Chelsea and he would like to go back to Stamford Bridge and prove his mettle.
Former Manchester City star Shaun Goater also expressed the same views as he said that the Blues would greatly benefit from re-signing the 23-year-old.
“I’m going to go with Lukaku,” he said on Sky Sports when questioned on the pair. “He’s not as consistent as he should be, but I’ll go with Lukaku.”
“He’s 23, there’s a lot more to come from him in the years to come.”
“He’s a big target man, he can hold it up, he can give you that relief as a team. He’s a decent finisher but he can improve as well.”
“Diego Costa is about 28 so he’s probably peaking at this time, but he’s still a quality striker.”
