Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has insisted that he is prepared to leave Chelsea in order to play first-team football and has revealed that German side Borussia Dortmund would be a perfect place to go and apply his trade.

The Belgium striker has been on-loan at West Bromwich Albion all season and helped guide the Baggies to a top-half finish.

Lukaku put in great performances for Steve Clarke's men and contribute to the side with 17 goals in just 35 Premier League appearances, including a second-half hat-trick against champions Manchester United during the epic 5-5 thriller on the final day of the season.

Despite impressing all season for West Brom, Lukaku feels that first-team opportunities will be limited at Stamford Bridge and for that reason, he is prepared to leave the club permanently.

Premier League trio West Brom, West Ham and Swansea have all revealed their interest in the Belgium 19-year-old, but the striker himself wants a move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Lukaku told reporters: "I’ll start the season with Chelsea then I will speak with the management to discuss the best choice. I am a realist.

"I still need to grow and for that I need to have time to play during the next season. Dortmund would be a good choice."
