Romelu Lukaku’s appearance as Chelsea’s main striker has not lived up to expectations. The price to bring him worth 115 million euros or Rp. 1.8 trillion from Inter Milan, so far does not match his sharpness.
Although it has been paid for at a high price, Lukaku’s appearance with Chelsea has not lived up to expectations.
In fact, Lukaku appeared ferocious with Inter Milan last season. He was able to score 24 goals from 36 matches in Serie A.
The 28-year-old Belgian has only scored three goals in 11 appearances for the Blues in the Premier League. A very contrasting comparison when he was at Inter Milan.
It turns out that the problem faced by Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea is that there is no right partner. Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino believes that the Blues need to bring in a number 10 so that Lukaku can appear fierce, which is a kind of partner on the front lines.
Like Lautaro Martinez
Cascarino also commented on the problems experienced by Lukaku. According to him, Chelsea need to bring in player number 10 so that Lukaku can appear as fierce as when he had Lautaro Martinez at Inter Milan.
“I’ve seen no.10s at other clubs that are very important. Thierry Henry has Bergkamp, he’s a fantastic no.10,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
Not Timo Werner
Chelsea actually have a potential striker like Timo Werner who was bought from RB Leipzig for 53 million euros. Cascarino assesses the German player is not the right tandem for Lukaku.
“Timo Werner is not a very good player in terms of partnerships,” continued Cascarino.
