Thomas Tuchel handed revised £67m Chelsea transfer template as PSG advance Romelu Lukaku talks



Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, so we took a look at how Thomas Tuchel could spend his windfall acutely

Romelu Lukaku faces an uncertain future at Chelsea amid growing interest from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports. The 28-year-old striker has struggled to acclimatise to life in the Premier League since returning to west London in the summer from Inter Milan.

Transfer insider Dean Jones has reported that the French outfit is set to hold further discussions over the prospect of signing the Belgium international. Lukaku, who joined the Blues for a record-breaking £97.5 million, has become one of many players that have struggled to warrant their eye-watering price tags.

The Belgian has scored just 12 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions this season. Lukaku’s misfortune has seen his market value plummet by £13.5m, opening a discourse among Chelsea fans regarding the distribution of spending on transfers.

Despite the west London side’s riches, the club has enjoyed far more success in recent years, completing shrewd transfers as opposed to extortionate ones. Since Chelsea first tasted Champions League glory in 2012, the Blues have signed the likes of Edouard Mendy, Nemanja Matic and Cesar Azpilicueta for no more than £22m apiece.

The club has also spent approximately £167m on just Kepa Arrizabalaga, Alvaro Morata and Danny Drinkwater, so let’s look at how the Blues could devise a windfall acutely from the potential sale of Lukaku, who is currently valued at £76.5m by Transfermarkt.
