'Next Drogba' still dreaming of Chelsea switch

Published Add your comment

Belgian wonderkid Romelu Lukaku has admitted his dream club is Chelsea.

The 18-year-old prodigy has been linked with a string of clubs across Europe, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Inter Milan all thought to be keen on adding the player's services.

Daily Mail reports claim the Anderlecht striker has already turned his back on a handful of clubs in the hope of securing a move to Stamford Bridge, and the player dubbed 'the next Didier Drogba' reaffirmed his desire to play for Chelsea at a recent sponsor's event for schoolchildren.

"To be a Chelsea player," the nine-cap international wrote, according to the national paper, in response to the question, 'what is your dream?'

Only a week ago it was claimed Roman Abramovich, owner of the Blues, had spoken with senior members of staff at Chelsea over the possibility of bringing Lukaku to west London.

Drogba has also been involved in the past, urging the player to make a Barclays Premier League switch to the club.

"I told him - you have to sign for Chelsea," said the Ivorian international last summer.

A move could depend on the appointment of a new manager, with Guus Hiddink favourite to take the vacant position at this season's English league runners-up. The Daily Mail claims his first act as Chelsea boss could be to sign Lukaku, although it would cost the club in excess of £20 million.
