Chelsea are still searching for a top quality striker for next season, one that they have badly missed over the past few years.
Eto’o is already gone and it is likely that the likes of Torres and Ba might be sold in summer to make way for new strike-force.
Blues are all set to sign a superstar goalscorer in the upcoming transfer window. Someone like Diego Costa or Radamel Falcao will be perfect addition to the side that has brilliant attacking options available.
However, it is time that Chelsea give Belgian international Romelu Lukaku the chance that he thoroughly deserves.
While not playing for Chelsea and with smaller teams like WBA and Everton, the former Anderlecht star still proved that he was the best Blue striker for the past two season.
Chelsea missed his pace, power and goal scoring talent upfront and Lukaku has proved that he is ready for Chelsea.
The youngster is still hoping that he has a future with Chelsea as he claimed:
“You know, I still have a two-year contract at the biggest club in England, because that’s Chelsea. So I still hope to play there. Chelsea have a good coach.”
Mourinho needs the next Drogba and Lukaku surely has the traits to become like the legendary Ivorian and Chelsea star.
Romelu has been equally brilliant for the national side as well and in the absence of Christian Benteke, he will lead the forward like at the FIFA World Cup.
