Harry Redknapp sends warning to Chelsea about Romelu Lukaku transfer
The former Spurs manager warns Romelu Lukaku that he would need to improve his consistency if the striker returns to Chelsea this summer
Harry Redknapp has raised questions about Romelu Lukaku’s consistency amid talk of a potential return to Chelsea this summer.
The Belgium international has scored 24 times in 36 games in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign to prompt talk of a big-money money at the end of the season.
Lukaku was the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer before Harry Kane netted four times in Tottenham Hotspur’s 6-1 win against Leicester City at King Power Stadium.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is thought to have made the striker one of his top targets ahead of the summer transfer window.
Lukaku moved to Everton from Chelsea in 2013 after the 24-year-old struggled to tie down a regular starting spot at the west London club.
Speaking to the Evening Standard about speculation linking Lukaku with a move to Chelsea, Redknapp said:
“Romelu Lukaku could win the Golden Boot this weekend but he would still have to show more consistency to be a success at Chelsea.”
Lukaku has scored 52 times in 109 appearances in the Premier League over three seasons at Goodison Park.
Chelsea won the Premier League title this season in their first campaign under Antonio Conte.
