Revealed: When Romelu Lukaku will undergo Chelsea medical and what arrival means for Jules Kounde chase

 

A fresh insight into Romelu Lukaku’s imminent move to Chelsea has been forthcoming on Saturday evening.

Big Rom eyed

The headlines at Stamford Bridge this week have of course been dominated by fresh links to ex-Chelsea hitman Lukaku.

On the back of a campaign which saw midfielder Jorginho finish as the club’s top-scorer, Thomas Tuchel has understandably made clear his desire for reinforcements up top.

Borussia Dortmund standout Erling Haaland was initially viewed as the first-choice target on the part of the Blues, but Jadon Sancho’s Manchester United switch made it altogether unlikely that the board at Signal Iduna Park would be willing to come to the table.

Chelsea, in turn, were forced to turn their attentions elsewhere, culminating in fresh interest in the aforementioned Lukaku.

Belgian hitman Lukaku of course previously lined out for the Pensioners, during the early years of his fledgling career.

Having since gone on to establish himself as one of world football’s most prolific strikers across a two-year stint with Inter Milan, though, those in a position of power in West London have evidently come to the conclusion that the 28-year-old is now ready to lead the line at Stamford Bridge.

Word, in turn, was forthcoming earlier today that Chelsea had struck a club record €115 million deal to bring ‘Big Rom’ back to the Premier League:

Kounde still on the menu

And, on Saturday evening, a further insight into the situation has been forthcoming.

As per transfer expert David Ornstein – the man who first broke news of a deal being struck between Chelsea and Inter – Lukaku will carry out his medical with the former tomorrow night.

Should all go according to plan, the Belgian international will then make his way to London either in the hours that follow, or early on Monday.

Elsewhere, confirmation has also been forthcoming that, once Lukaku’s signing has been sewn up, the Chelsea hierarchy will turn their attentions back towards Sevilla defender Jules Kounde:
