Chelsea’s attack issue can be quickly and cheaply fixed.

Chelsea Online News: 
Chelsea lacks a quality striker to score goals despite having spent nearly Β£600 million on 17 players over the last two transfer windows

Only Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling have scored more than three goals for Chelsea this season, but there is one player they may choose to bring back for another season.

Chelsea is starting to make plans for the following season after a disastrous campaign in the Premier League, where they currently sit tenth behind teams like Brighton, Fulham, and Brentford. The obvious question is what aspects of the pitch the Blues can improve upon to once again contend for the top spot. 

Chelsea lacks a quality striker to score goals despite having spent nearly Β£600 million on 17 players over the last two transfer windows. In fact, Raheem Sterling is the only other member of the team with more than three goals, with Kai Havertz leading the team with just eight goals across all competitions.

In terms of striking options, David Datro Fofana is inexperienced and unlikely to play frequently for the Blues if they are to mount a serious challenge for trophies in the upcoming season. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also expected to leave in the summer.

Lukaku will return to Chelsea in the summer after his season-long loan with Inter Milan expires. To be honest, it makes sense to give him another chance at Stamford Bridge.

He did, after all, cost Β£100 million in 2021, and the 29-year-old could end up playing a critical part of Graham Potter’s team.

Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta on Tuesday confirms that Romelu Lukaku will return to Chelsea FC this season, despite his current mixed results at the San Siro.

“The loan was for one season so on June 30 regardless of how well he plays, he’ll go back to Chelsea. This has been an unprecedented season,” Marotta told Sky Italia.

“I’m referring of course to the World Cup. The problems we’ve experienced have been experienced by other clubs too and the players who played at the World Cup.”

“Lukaku is a case in point. (Marcelo) Brozovic isn’t the Brozovic we know. Lukaku hasn’t found the fitness he needs to play his best football. He’s still not at his best or the player we got to see in years gone by.”

While Lukaku struggled to make an impact upon his return to Chelsea Bridge in 2021–2022, falling out with former manager Thomas Tuchel and scoring just 15 goals in 44 games, Lukaku could soon be given another chance under Graham Potter.

Without a designated No. 9 this season, Potter has struggled, frequently having to rely on Kai Havertz in the most advanced position. The German has only scored six goals in the Premier League this season, which isn’t particularly prolific.

Hence, with Victor Osimhen and Goncalo Ramos both rumored to be moving to the club, supporters have been pleading for Boehly to spend more money in the transfer market on a top class striker.

However, with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Mykhalo Mudryk, and Noni Madueke all playing off him, not to mention Enzo Fernandez pulling the strings from a deeper position and Christopher Nkunku joining in the summer, Lukaku could be the perfect fit for the Blues.

Simply put, with better service and a manager who believes in him, the 31-year-old could thrive again in the Premier League.
