Romelu Lukaku has agreed personal terms with Chelsea to make his long-awaited return to Stamford Bridge and a deal with Everton is almost done.

It's a deal that has been in the pipeline for what seems like forever but it now seems, after quotes from the player himself, that Chelsea have almost got their man for a fee of around £80m.

It could be a signing that splits the supporters opinions right down the middle this summer but you have to give Chelsea credit for not wasting any time at all looking to bolster their attacking options for next season.

So what of the comments made by Lukaku this week? When asked of the latest of his future he responded by saying:

"I know what’s happening, but I can’t tell you anything more. I know what’s happening. I know what’s happening, but I will leave the talks to my agent.”

The most important thing is: I want to win trophies. We are now talking to the club. As for the rest… I’m looking ahead. What I would like most to play in the Champions League and try to win the Premier League once. Or better: a few times. That would be the most beautiful thing.

That’s important for my progress as a player. I don’t want to stay at the same level. I want to improve and I know where I want to do that.

We’ll see what happens.”- Source: The Independent.

As we know Lukaku is a massive Chelsea fan and his hero was Didier Drogba who he believes he could emulate over time here at Chelsea if he was ever given a real chance to do so.

I have said many times that I believe that he is far from being the finished article up top but you cannot deny his impressive goal scoring record in the Premier League. If we can add a bit more power, to improve his aerial ability and to ensure he uses his strength in the right way such as Drogba used to do and Diego Costa now, he could become unplayable.

The whole situation with our strike force seems to be becoming clearer with the news that Diego Costa has been told to find a new club and Michy Batshuayi doesn't want a repeat of this season on the Chelsea bench. Alvaro Morata has reportedly still has his heart set on a move to Chelsea so we could see BOTH coming in if Costa and Batshuayi are sold.

It seems like it's only a matter of days before a deal is to be announced for the big Belgian striker and he makes his Chelsea return. What do you think?
