According to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino already has three players better in his squad better than wantaway Romelu Lukaku.

“I would be really shocked if Romelu Lukaku stayed at Chelsea,” Nevin told OLBG. “If you look at all of the strikers Chelsea have now, they have better options.

“[Christopher] Nkunku and [Nicolas] Jackson are young players who can play up front. They also have [Armando] Broja to come back and he is also a good player. That’s three players who are all good players.

“If you look at Lukaku’s last three seasons in English football, he did not score enough goals at all. With the way the game is played now, there needs to be a player pressing from the front.

“I just don’t think Lukaku fits that style of play anymore. The same thing happened with Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

“He is a great player, but should never have gone back to United, because he could not press from the front. I think the same goes for Lukaku at Chelsea.

“All of the teams in the Premier League play a high-intensity style of football. Lukaku is not your man for that.”
