According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Chelsea are more likely to sell Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal than Mykhaylo Mudryk during the 2024 summer transfer window.

Chelsea signed Lukaku from Inter Milan in the summer of 2021 in a deal worth £98million but the striker has spent the last two seasons away on loan.

Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT: “Come the summer, Chelsea have other names on the permanent sale list, deemed surplus to requirements for which they can pull in fees. Lukaku is one, and Maatsen is another that Chelsea would have sold in January if they could have done so.

“Money will likely come in when the obligation is triggered for Lewis Hall at Newcastle. The feeling is that it’s a case of when or if he permanently moves there based on the obligation terms.

“There’s Chalobah, possibly Cucurella, and Gallagher. So, there are enough other sellable assets that would mean Chelsea would not be forced to bring in a fee for Mudyrk.”
