Villarreal want Chelsea striker Lukaku on loan in January

Villarreal want to take Chelsea’s young Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku on loan in January, according to the Daily Mail.

Lukaku signed for the Blues in August but has found first team opportunities hard to come by, making just five appearances so far and failing to score.

With the likes of Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Daniel Sturridge all ahead of him, the 18-year-old could relish a temporary move with the chance of regular football.

He signed from Anderlecht for £18 million and is being tipped for a big future in the game, having already featured 13 times for his country.

Villarreal are desperate to strengthen their attack after seeing star striker Giuseppe Rossi ruled out for six months due to cruciate ligament damage.
