Tottenham to bid £20 million for Romelu Lukaku

Published 5 Comments

Belgium international, Romelu Lukaku, could be a step closer to securing a permanent move after reports in the Metro suggest Tottenham are preparing a £20 million bid for the Chelsea striker.


The 21-year old joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011, for a fee around £10 million pounds, but has spent the last two seasons on loan with West Brom and Everton. 

Despite scoring freely for both clubs, it is clear Jose Mourinho is not prepared to give the talented striker an opportunity at Stamford Bridge, a strange decision from the Blues boss considering his similarities to former Chelsea great Didier Drogba.


Lukaku has attracted interest from a host of top clubs, Juventus being one.

The Serie A Champions considered bringing the striker to Turin on loan, while more recently, Arsenal was prepared to give the player the opportunity of Champions League football, however Chelsea's valuation of £25 million for a player that has no European experience has been viewed as overpriced.

Adding to this, if reports are to be believed, Chilean star Alexis Sanchez has apparently told Liverpool that he wants to join Arsenal with a confirmed move to the Gunners expected to be announced shortly, although Barcelona are apparently waiting to see if Juventus are prepared to match Arsenal's offer of around £32 million.

Permanent move

Lukaku is desperate to secure a permanent move, and Tottenham could provide the Belgium international the perfect platform. The North London club did approach Chelsea at the end of the season, however the Blues were still undecided about whether to keep the player.

Tottenham are in need of a frontman that can deliver at least 20 goals a season following the spectacular failure of £26 million signing from Valencia, Roberto Soldado, and Lukaku's pace and presence could provide the club exactly that.

Spurs bound?

The Belgium international is a quality player, but at just 21-years old, he needs regular football with a top club if he is going to fulfil his much spoken about potential, and his comments made a few weeks back suggest his permeant move is not far off.

“I want to be somewhere where I can play my best football and hopefully win titles. There are choices to make. Things like that happen in football and I’m confident I will make the right choice.”
