Chelsea Set to Offer Lukaku Plus Cash for La Liga “Goal Machine”

By on December 20, 2013

According to reports from TuttoMercato, Chelsea are reportedly on the brink of landing the Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa.

Chelsea are in desperate need of reinforcements in the strike-department, and Costa has been in absolutely fine form for Atletico in La Liga.

The striker has scored a whopping 17 goals in only 15 La Liga starts, and has all but forced his way into the Spanish national side.

However, the transfer could come at a significant price for the London club, as Atletico are reportedly pushing for a swap deal that involves prolific Belgian Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku is currently on loan at Everton and is performing well, and Chelsea will be hesitant to part with the striker before he has been given a genuine chance of success at Stamford Bridge.

Lukaku has scored 8 goals in only 12 Premier League performances, and it remains to be seen whether or not Chelsea will see fit to part with the Belgian.
