Chelsea fans are split on whether their club should consider buying back Romelu Lukaku.
Fresh reports have claimed the Blues will consider making a move for their former striker should they fail to land Erling Haaland this summer.
Reports claim Haaland will only leave Dortmund for an ‘absolutely top club’ and it seems Chelsea would not be top of the list ahead of this summer when it is likely the Norwegian will cost more than £100million.
Lukaku was at Chelsea for three years in all, and his departure has gone down as a decision Chelsea got wrong, the Belgian going on to play for Manchester United and Inter Milan.
He joined Inter in 2019 and he has since racked up a hugely impressive goal record of 42 goals in 62 league games, and that’s why Chelsea are reportedly considering re-signing him.
The report claims the Blues are happy to spend a large amount of money this summer to land a striker, but they want to get the decision right.
Though, Chelsea fans are not exactly sure whether Lukaku, who could cost £86million this summer, would be the right transfer call.

Harige_zak – “Will Lukaku fit our playstyle? When you watch most of his goals for Inter, he’s running at the defenders with a lot of space. He won’t get that with Chelsea and we already have Werner who’s great at counter attacking.”
Jassle93 – “His finishing has become exceptional compared to when he left us but the biggest trait he’ll bring to Chelsea is his hold up play.”
BChang89 – “I mean, the lad has tons of experience banging in goals in the PL. I think he knows how to score here lol regardless of play style. If he’s scored goals for West Brom and Everton, I’m not worried about him scoring for us.”
LethalCaribou – “No disrespect to lukaku but I would be disappointed if that’s who we end up getting.”
Leaderxyz – “One concern I have regarding Lukaku is his age. On paper you’d think he had a decent few years left but he was a first team starter at the age of 16 in Belgium. That’s equals a lot of mileage already and then there’s the 90 caps he has at international level.”
Kai_123 – “I genuinely would not mind getting Lukaku back. He is a proven player even in the Premier League.”
Soccerislife10z – “Oh please no lukaku. I really don’t know what the hype is about. Yes he have great goal record but when you watch him play, most of the time he is pretty average. He just wouldn’t cut it, if we are truly looking at a world class striker.”
