Chelsea's game against Real Madrid showed that a capable striker can lead the blues to a major trophy. Chelsea were so cordinated in the game,they created chances but Timo Werner failed to convert these chances to goal. Sources have made it clear that the blues have stepped up their pursuit for Romelu Lukaku.
Reason is because, Lukaku seems to be the affordable striker they could sign.Erling Braut Haaland was the first choice but his buy-out clause seems very expensive. Romelu lukaku on his own side is affordable at a fee of €70m,he has played for the blues before he got sold to Everton after which he signed for Manutd and then Inter Milan.
The presence of Lukaku will not necessarily mean Timo Werner's departure, both could start but the point striker will remain Lukaku but that is if Chelsea signs him. Timo Werner really make good runs upfront, he keeps the defenders at alert but has always failed to convert chances. Signing Lukaku will create a competition for him or even make him a better player.
