Fantastic player – Graham Potter opens up on return of Chelsea’s £97.5 star
Chelsea’s Graham Potter is not ruling out the return of Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge this summer,
Potter said that Lukaku is a fantastic player who the club knows very well and also likes his pattern of football.
Chelsea brought back Lukaku for a fee around £97.5 million from Inter in August 2021 but the striker struggled in his first season under sacked manager Thomas Tuchel, scoring 15 goals in 44 appearances.
The striker was sent on loan back to Inter Milan for the whole of the season where he has faced injury challenges this term and has scored five goals in 19 games for the Serie A champions.
When asked about Lukaku’s potential return to Chelsea, Potter told Canal+: “Well, he’s still a Chelsea player and we’re monitoring him of course.
“He’s a fantastic player, someone who we know and like.
“But again, we need to speak about that in the summer because he’s playing on loan for his club.”
