Romelu Lukaku ‘recommended’ Inter’s defensive duo to Chelsea

Romelu Lukaku 'recommended' Inter's defensive duo to Chelsea

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is expected to recommend two Inter Milan defenders to the Blues.

Chelsea stacked team

On paper, Chelsea have arguably the strongest team in the Premier League today.

His attacking options are especially strong, with Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi fighting for just three spots.

Moving to central midfield; N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and new signing Saul Niguez provide plenty of world-class options for two places.

Marcos Alonso and Ben Chilwell are two excellent picks for the left back, and the defenders offer Thomas Tuchel very different characteristics.

Then Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta and Hudson-Odoi are all capable of operating on the right back.

Edouard Mendy is also backed by Kepa Arrizabalaga between the sticks.

That only leaves the center-back, where all Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Azpilicueta and Trevoh Chalobah compete for three spots. James can also be used as a right-side central in a three if necessary.

But, with Silva now 36, Azpilicueta 32 and Christensen and Rudiger in the final year of their respective contracts, the heart of the club’s rear is probably Chelsea’s weakest area today.

The Blues did seem willing to tackle this problem by hiring Jules Kounde from Seville, but that deal fell through during the summer window.

And now, as mentioned above, Chelsea still seem interested in adding another center-back or two to their ranks.

According Goal, citing MediasetChelsea are considering changes for Inter Milan center-backs Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni.

Inter, of course, would top Serie A last time out, and finished 2020/21 with the best defensive record in the Italian top flight, having sent just 35 in 38 games.

As a result, it is easy to see why Chelsea may be interested in the couple. The Goal report adds that Chelsea have been recommended to Skriniar and Bastoni by Romelu Lukaku, who was of course at Inter last season before joining Chelsea:

The Blues are interested in defensive reinforcements and have been recommended by Romelu Lukaku, whom they signed from Inter in the summer.

No possible transfer fees are mentioned for any of the Inter players.
