Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku wants to play first-team football next season, and if he can’t get it under Jose Mourinho, he is open to another loan spell.
The 20-year-old Belgian has had a very successful spell on loan at West Brom this term, netting an impressive 17 league goals in just 35 appearances (including 15 substitute appearances).
But the former Anderlecht man told The
“First we need to have a conversation about what his plans are and then we’ll go from there. I’m ready to go there and do my best because my first ambition is to play at Chelsea, but I have to be realistic.
“I’m 20 years old and I need to play, so we’ll see what will happen. I’m very proud to be a Chelsea player. I’ve had a very good season on loan and I will go back and show my qualities.”
Chelsea currently have two striking options for Mourinho to assess when he arrives at Stamford Bridge, with Fernando Torres and Demba Ba both on the Blues books.
Torres scored eight league goals, while Ba, who signed from Newcastle during the January transfer window, only managed two league goals in 14 appearances.
