Ian Wright admits he would be disappointed if reported Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku opted to move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.

The Belgium international has firmly established himself as one of the Premier League’s best strikers during his impressive career at Goodison Park so far.

Lukaku is the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer thanks to an incredible return of 23 goals in 30 appearances in the English top flight this season.

Unsurprisingly, the powerful centre-forward has been linked with a move to a new club in the summer, with Chelsea reported to be interested in their former striker.

Manchester United have been touted as another potential destination for Lukaku, who has made no secret of his desire to play in the Champions League.

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as one of the favourites to sign Lukaku in recent weeks following their exit in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Former Arsenal striker Wright, though, would be saddened to see Lukaku opt for lucrative deal over a potential move to a European superpower where the striker could develop his game.

“I would be very disappointed if he goes to PSG. PSG isn’t the place where he will learn his trade to win the Champions League,” Wright told BBC Radio Five Live.

“He will play in it but if he wants to win the Champions League and progress in the side.

“I’d like to know if he is going somewhere for money or if he is going to progress himself and win as much as he can win. I’m not sure what camp he is in.”
