Former Inter Milan frontman Romelu Lukaku has allegedly described his situation at Chelsea as “hot”.
The Belgian recently admitted he is “not happy” at Stamford Bridge after his £97.5million move from Inter Milan last summer.
Lukaku’s surprising comments to the Italian press were made a few weeks ago, but were not broadcast until the end of December.
Chelsea manager Tuchel dropped the striker for Sunday’s Premier League game against Liverpool – which finished 2-2 – as a result of the comments.
He’s now set to discuss his future with the Blues, with a January transfer potentially on the horizon.
Speaking after Chelsea’s draw against Liverpool, Tuchel said: “We will decide it tomorrow, have a meeting from there and inform you.”
And according to NBC, Lukaku told his former Everton team-mate Tim Howard about Monday’s meeting.
“I can’t say too much,” Lukaku is alleged to have said. “The situation is hot. I have another meeting on Monday. After that, I can say more.”
