Graeme Souness revealed that Chelsea will win the title if they can keep their new signing Romelu Lukaku fit for the season. Lukaku completed a move back to Chelsea for £97.5m, seven years after leaving the club. During his first stint, he made just 15 appearances for the club, failing to score in the process.
He moved to Manchester United after doing very well at Everton. Although at Old Trafford during his two years he could never find his form of old. He could not break the 20 goal mark at Old Trafford. Lukaku decided to move to Serie A with Inter Milan where he thrived under Antonio Conte. Inter Milan ended up winning the Serie A with Lukaku scoring 24 goals, second only to Cristiano Ronaldo with 29.
“He looks like an old-style English center-forward but he’s anything but that.” Graeme Souness said talking about Romelu Lukaku. “He can get hold of the ball, he can bring people into play. He’s got that power and that physical side as well, he can fend defenders off the ball. He can also run into the channels. There are no question marks about him. If Chelsea keeps Lukaku fit, they can win the Premier League. I can only see him being a success at the club.”
“He is.” Roy Keane said when asked if he is the answer to their scoring troubles. “Chelsea, we know are rock solid at the back, but they need that striker who can get you 25 to 30 goals, and I think he is the man.”
