Romelu Lukaku has secured a regular spot in the starting lineup, proving instrumental for the team this season with 10 goals and an assist in 16 matches. His outstanding performances have garnered interest from several teams, with Newcastle emerging as the most eager contender to secure the Belgian striker for the upcoming season.
While Lukaku is set to return to Chelsea at the end of this season, the London club is strategizing to capitalize on the Belgian’s market value. The 30-year-old striker is under contract with Chelsea until 2026, and his estimated value stands at around 45 million euros.
Newcastle, demonstrating strong intent, is willing to meet this valuation to acquire the services of the prolific forward. Keep an eye on the player’s camp for updates and potential approaches from Newcastle in the coming weeks.
