Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hinted that Romelu Lukaku may be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The Belgian striker started the season with the Blues but opted to join Everton on loan before the close of the summer transfer window.

Since then Chelsea have been linked with a host of strikers but failed to make any additions up front in the January window.

Mourinho, speaking ahead of Chelsea's Premier League tie against Manchester City tomorrow, revealed that he would look to bring 'one signing, max two' at the end of the season - and added that one or two could leave - with Lukaku in the firing line.

“One to leave, two to leave because they want to play more because one of the kids feels it’s better to go and play on loan somewhere,” he said. “I see a very quiet summer.”

Chelsea's strikers have struggled to find the back of the net regularly this season - indeed, winger Eden Hazard is the club's leading striker with ten strikes to his name.

The Blues were active in January despite their lack of forward reinforcements; Nemanja Matic arrived from Benfica while Mohamed Salah was signed from Basel.

Chelsea currently sit in third place in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester City.
