Potter no longer wants Chelsea’s £97m striker at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are now ready to part ways with their £97 million signing, Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues are also hoping that the Belgium international would have a good World Cup campaign to boost his value.

Chelsea signed Lukaku from Inter Milan in the 2021 summer transfer window seven years after he left Stamford Bridge.

Lukaku was, however, sent back on a season long loan to the Italian side after an underwhelming season under Thomas Tuchel.

The former Everton and Manchester United striker scored just 15 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions.

And now the Evening Standard is reporting that Lukaku is no longer wanted at Stamford Bridge by new manager, Graham Potter.

The Serie A giants paid a loan fee of £6.7 million in the summer and verbally agreed that they could take Lukaku on loan again on the same terms next season.

But Chelsea are looking for suitors for the striker who will sign him on a permanent basis.

The west Londoners want to recoup as much money as possible from the sale of Lukaku and hope that a good World Cup campaign can serve their purpose.
