Chelsea flop Romelu Lukaku could still turn out to be Blues’ own Harry Kane | Football | Sport


There’s little from Lukaku’s first season to suggest he could be more prolific, having scored only eight times in 26 games in his first campaign in 2021-22. But when there may be a boss with the man-management skills who can inject confidence and get him firing, it’s Pochettino.

His words of affirmation and praise will suit a player of Lukaku’s fragile ego and by giving him a probability to impress within the centre forward role, it could be an enormous leap of religion within the striker. He may not have the identical creative mind as Kane, but on his day, there aren’t many more lethal strikers on the planet.

For Chelsea, Pochettino helping Lukaku rediscover his form is certainly a less expensive alternative to signing £100m-rated Kane, and even Benfica star Goncalo Ramos.

And if Inter Milan resolve against taking over the choice to sign him permanently, it may very well be a case of third time lucky for Lukaku in west London.
