The 21-year-old, who hit 15 Premier League goals while on loan at Everton last season, has an uncertain future as it remains unclear whether he is involved in Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea already look set to boost their striking options this summer, with Diego Costa understood to have passed a medical ahead of a proposed move from Atletico Madrid.

Lukaku is currently at the World Cup in Brazil with Belgium and he has already conceded that he may need to depart the club in order to continue playing regular football.

Allofs has previously confirmed the Bundesliga side’s interest in a move for Lukaku as they chase a new striker, but he knows that they may face stern competition to secure his services with a host of Premier League clubs, Juventus and Atletico among those also reported to be keen.

"If the player is getting cheaper, maybe this affair is picking up pace. But even then we won’t be the only club chasing the player’s signature," he told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"Actually we are looking at top-class strikers and we do not have any pressure. We are patiently waiting for the right moment.

"There will be some movement in all of this after FIFA World Cup tournament."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
