Steve Nicol seems not to be convinced in the Blues’ move to sign Romelu Lukaku, noting that it might not be a good idea.
The south west London side is thought to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer as they warm up for Thomas Tuchel’s first full campaign in charge.
Olivier Giroud finished a move to AC Milan at the beginning of this month, while Tammy Abraham struggled to maintain a regular spot in the first team under Tuchel towards the end of last season.
There have been several opinions that the blues could swiftly make a move to re-sign Chelsea’s former striker, Romelu Lukaku this summer to consolidate their options up front.
The 28-year-old Belgium international was in good form last session as he scored 24 goals and made 11 assists in 36 Serie A games to aid Inter Milan claim the Italian title.
However, former Liverpool FC star Nicol is arguing Lukaku signing could not be a right move by Chelsea this summer.
During an interview with ESPN FC, Nicol said:
“Chelsea are in a position now where if they sign a centre-forward, he has to be a natural finisher. That’s the one thing they’re missing.
“As many goals as Lukaku has, he’s not a natural finisher. He has been at Chelsea twice before.”
