Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has named Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount as the best young players at Chelsea.

The 26-year-old has been one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe this season, having scored 23 goals in all competitions for Inter Milan.

And apparently the Belgium international is still keeping tabs on his former London club.

In a Q&A session on Twitter on Saturday, when asked to pick Chelsea’s best young player he said: “I like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.”


The former Manchester United player also answered a few other interesting questions.

On an interesting story from the 2012 Champions League final in Munich, Lukaku said he was “scared” by Salomon Kalou’s haircut. Although, I’d say Kalou was just ahead of his time.

Lukaku, however, likely upset some Chelsea fans when he admitted his favourite goal for Everton was against Chelsea.

Although, it would be impossible to argue that it was not a beautiful goal.

Lukaku had a two-year stint at Old Trafford before he decided to play under former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte at Inter Milan last summer.
