Barcelona 'eyeing' Lukaku as Haaland, Lewandowski 'alternative'


Barcelona could attempt to save Romelu Lukaku from his disastrous Chelsea return this summer as Xavi eyes more attacking reinforcements at the Nou Camp, according to Marca.

According to the Spanish publication, 'everything indicates' that the 28-year-old will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season based on 'what he is saying'. It added that Lukaku 'isn't comfortable at Chelsea' and has 'several suitors', one of which is understood to be Barcelona.

The report claims the La Liga giants have already moved for his services, with members of the club's hierarchy meeting Lukaku's agent over a potential transfer. Barcelona are thought to view Lukaku as their 'plan C' if moves for Erling Haaland or Robert Lewandowski fail to materialise.

Despite the rumblings, the situation is said to be 'very complicated' because Chelsea are yet to pay off £77.1m from the blockbuster deal to bring Lukaku back to west London from Inter Milan last summer.
