Romelu Lukaku wants to resolve "unfinished business" with Chelsea

Football News

New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is set to splash out this summer as he tries to reinvent the Blues' under-performing squad, and he could now be a step closer to finding a new striker.

Despite already boasting the likes of Diego Costa, Pedro, Alexandre Pato, Loic Remy, and Radamel Falcao, Chelsea have not scored enough goals this season, and have set their hearts on a familiar face.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 18 times in the Premier League for Everton this season, but is expected to leave Goodison Park at the end of the season.

"Unfinished business"

According to The Sun, he now believes he has "unfinished business" with Chelsea, who let him go despite giving him just 10 games to prove himself.

Having been unable to oust Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o or Demba Ba - none of whom were huge successes in West London, it has to be said - Lukaku left for pastures new, but he could now prove the key to the Blues challenging for honours once again.

The Belgian striker has been seen as the one that got away, having excelled in loan spells at West Brom and Everton and improved even further since making his move to Merseyside permanent.

Earning Chelsea's trust

In a further oversight by Chelsea, such was their lack of faith in him that they did not include a buy-back clause in his contract, so they will have to pay just as much as Lukaku's other suitors - and that could see them shell out a cool £65million.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are the other clubs reportedly interested in his signature, but it now seems he favours a move to Chelsea to finish what he began when he moved to England from Anderlecht.

He has no doubt been at the forefront of Roman Abramovich's mind since his two goals knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup and sent Everton to the semi-finals. If Roberto Martinez' side reach the final, that could well be Lukaku's game - and it might just boost his asking price even higher.
