Tottenham to make enquiry to Chelsea over Romelu Lukaku

Published Add your comment

Recently appointed Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has made Romelu Lukaku one of his transfer targets for the summer, as he looks to replace flop striker Roberto Soldado.

Information in the Express infers that the Spurs manager sees the big Belgian as the ideal purchase as he looks to begin his reign at White Hart Lane, and is prepared to approach Chelsea with an enquiry to see how much they want for their man. Lukaku’s future in west London is precarious at best, and with Jose Mourinho said to be lining up deals to bring in new frontmen following the disappointing form of his strikers in front of goal last term, the 21-year-old could be shipped.

The youngster enjoyed a fine season in Everton colours last campaign, and his 16 goals in all competitions for Roberto Martinez’s resurgent Toffees won’t have gone unnoticed by Premier League bosses looking for an in-form forward. Of course Mourinho has always looked to distance himself from the majority, and his unwillingness to provide clarity over Lukaku’s position at Stamford Bridge moving forward has left many scratching their heads.

The general consensus is that he could be offloaded along with the likes of Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, with a number of clubs lining up to compete for his signature. Quotes from Wolfsburg boss Klaus Allofs yesterday confirmed that they will be in the running, while Everton are sure to try their luck in tempting Lukaku back to Goodison Park.
