A big sale for Chelsea? Blues may finally offload Romelu Lukaku as Saudi Arabian clubs eager to sign striker after Roma loan ends

According to Gazzetta, Chelsea has established a valuation of approximately €43 million (£37m/$46m) for the 30-year-old forward. This figure might perhaps attract attention from Saudi teams that are prepared to offer the same amount. Roma has explicitly said that they are financially capable of meeting Chelsea’s requirements, but only if they secure a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season. Furthermore, the waning interest can be attributed, in part, to the anticipated resurgence of Tammy Abraham’s match fitness.

The report also states that Roma is considering a transfer for Paris Saint-Germain’s Hugo Ekitike, who is anticipated to be a more affordable choice. The Giallorossi have a strong and productive partnership with PSG and have engaged in multiple moves, such as Leandro Paredes, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Renato Sanches, which might be advantageous for them in their pursuit.

Lukaku, who earlier declined a highly profitable contract offer of €50 million per season, is now willing to consider the opportunity of competing in the Saudi Pro League, as long as it ensures a permanent departure from Chelsea. Lukaku’s change in mindset signifies his aspiration for a new beginning outside of Stamford Bridge.
