Romelu Lukaku’s agent has stated that the young Belgian will be going out on loan this season, and it will to a premier league club.
The agent stated that club is not Fulham, so the possible destinations would either be West Ham or Bolton in my opinion. West Ham have already been linked to the player and that option has been strengthened by their failure to secure a loan deal for Andy Carroll.
Bolton would also appear to be a likely option as both Kakuta and Sturridge have been sent to Owen Coyle’s team for development in recent seasons.
Another option could be a promoted club like Southampton, who have already spent big a £6m striker Jay Rodriguez.
With Lukaku on the way out, Chelsea will be left with two recognized strikers, one of which is preferred on the wing. With Hulk seemingly too expensive, surely Chelsea will be attempting to buy another striker.
