Hmm... Romeu, Lukaku, Luka, who's next? Kaka? I think i finally see through Chelsea's transfer policy!

Does chelsea really need another striker? Didn't they just pay 50mil for Torres. I'd take Sturridge over this dude for much less the cost Not to mention that they still have Kalou, Anelka and Dogba.

I agree, but the club isn't buying with just this season in mind anymore.

Besides since we got Lukaku when he's 18 he can be counted as being homegrown as long as he completes three seasons while being under 21. Also his price is probably only going to go up so why wait till then when there will probably be other suitors as well.

He is for the future i say they buy him and loan him out or something he's too young

Tough one. He says he doesn't want loaning out and, if I'm honest, he also LOOKS plenty big enough and strong enough to be playing EPL. Just with the sheer number of strikers at Chelsea now his chances might be limited AND Stuz has looked the best of a decent lot pre season. Boas must have some clue, mind. Toughie, as I said.

Also, he LED the line for Anderlecht and that central striker is always going to be Torres or Drogba while they're there with Anelka possibly even playing midfield from what we've seen recently-Sturridge plays nicely either side with his pace and left foot so just where does Lukaku fit in if not as the NEXT Drogba? Factor in Kalou not leaving, Malouda often playing in the front three(and though everyone forgets he had more assists than any other Prem player last year even though EVERY Chelsea fan wants to sell him????)and Yossi preferring those positions out wide who knows what the hell's going on when we really, REALLY need a creative MF?!
