Tottenham are now ready to offer Romelu Lukaku a £300,000-a-week contract to leave Chelsea this summer.

That is according to Football Transfers.

So, what is the latest on Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, the Belgium international appears to have no future at Stamford Bridge, with Al Hilal and Juventus the only two sides willing to offer him an escape route so far this summer.

Now – however – Tottenham are taking an interest, as the north Londoners prepare for life after Harry Kane.

Football Transfers believe Ange Postecoglou views Lukaku as an ideal replacement for the England international, given the fact he boasts a vast amount of Premier League experience, and therefore will not need much time to settle.

Spurs are hoping to sign the 30-year-old on an initial loan deal as Bayern Munich continue to hold talks about Kane.

It is said that Tottenham do not – however – want to include an option to buy Lukaku in the deal.

Therefore – by the sounds of it – Spurs simply view the Chelsea flop as a short term solution, if Kane does leave N17 this summer.

Football Transfers add that Tottenham are willing to replace their No.10 from within by trusting Richarlison more often, although Lukaku is still being considered as a genuine target.

Lukaku would become even more unpopular at Chelsea if he joined Tottenham

In our view, Lukaku – who Ashley Young once called “incredible” – would do even more damage to his reputation at Stamford Bridge if he moved to Tottenham.

The Belgian is already quite unpopular, after holding that famous interview about his love for Inter Milan just months after returning to Chelsea in a then club-record £97.5m move.

Lukaku has caused even more angst this summer by refusing to turn up for pre-season training at Cobham, with Todd Boehly now growing very frustrated at the striker – according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Therefore, if the Antwerp-born forward now moves to Chelsea’s bitter rivals Spurs, it would not do much to help his image in west London, to say the very least.
