“I’m delighted Eddie is staying with us. He represents what we are all about and all the values of the club,” manager Mikel Arteta said. “We are very happy that he has extended his contract and now we have to get to work and continue to develop the great talent and person that we have in him.”
Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel would like to replace Romelu Lukaku with Robert Lewandowski, but there are significant obstacles to completing both deals, sources say.
Lukaku is keen on rejoining Inter Milan and endured a disappointing first season back at Stamford Bridge — with eight goals in 26 Premier League games — after leaving the Serie A club for €115 million last summer.
Dependable reports say talks occurred between Lukaku and the club as of late, during which Chelsea flagged their readiness to permit the Belgian striker to leave the club. Nonetheless, the Blues need to recover by far most of the club-record fee they paid only a year sooner, while Inter are in need of money and would favor a loan deal.
Chelsea had originally been asking for around €20m-€25m to lend Lukaku for just one season in an effort to offset any depreciation in his transfer value given he turns 30 next year.
However, they are now willing to accept a significantly lower fee and talks are continuing — it is as yet undecided whether any agreement will include an option or obligation to make the move permanent, or how his £300,000-a-week wages will be paid.
Simultaneously, Chelsea are seeking a striker of their own to reshape their attack. Tuchel has long been an admirer of Lewandowski, who has confirmed his intention to leave Bayern Munich, and believes he would thrive in the Premier League despite turning 34 in August.
The Poland international has been heavily linked with a €40m move to Barcelona, with reports in Spain this week suggesting he has verbally agreed a deal but a lack of funds is holding things up.
Many rivals are hoping to jump on any vulnerability, with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United among the clubs connected with Lewandowski. Sources say Tuchel has urged Chelsea to enter the running in the event that there is any opportunity an arrangement should be possible.
