After signing for Stamford Bridge for £100 million last summer, there were high expectations for Lukaku. However, the Belgian striker had a disappointing campaign, netting just eight Premier League goals.

Lukaku has been open about wanting to play for a Serie A team again. The 29-year-loan old’s agreement between Inter and Chelsea was finalized yesterday.

His season-long loan at Inter Milan will cost the Italian team 8 million euros (£6.9 million).

The Premier League powerhouses have been linked with offers for Robert Lewandowski and Raheem Sterling ever since it became clear that Lukaku may leave Chelsea.

Leboeuf, a former Blues defender, feels Sterling from Manchester City would not be the answer to Chelsea’s problems and that Thomas Tuchel should prioritize other signings.

While winning the Champions League in 2017, Chelsea has mostly impressed since Tuchel took over as the club’s head coach at Stamford Bridge. However, the Blues were unable to stay up with local rivals Man City and Liverpool throughout the previous campaign.

Leboeuf said to EPSN when asked who Chelsea should sign to replace Lukaku: “No one.” That, in my opinion, is not Chelsea’s top priority.

If you merely consider the headlines, you may discuss class-A players like Lewandowski or Sterling. However, you must search outside of the team.

“You need center backs.” I want to discuss new midfielder, right-backs, and [Jules] Kounde. They must look in this direction.

They have searched for a high scorer for two years, but to no avail. They have gifted players who must adjust and gain confidence.

Finding a striker, though, is not a top concern. Instead of trying to generate headlines with a striker since that isn’t a priority, I want to see Chelsea make smart deals.

Leboeuf responded when asked directly about Sterling, who is rumored to be moving to west London for £50 million: “If Sterling is at his best, no doubt that it’s a bonus. But I’m not sure what kind of player Chelsea would get.

He can definitely contribute something special and is a superb player. However, I do not believe that will help Chelsea’s issues with scoring goals or giving the players all newfound confidence.

The crosses made by Reece James and [Ben Chilwell] on the two wings won’t be resolved as well.

If they can’t find someone who can head the ball, things will get hard because neither Sterling nor Werner, Pulisic, or even Mount can produce anything extraordinary from crosses. Havertz might be able to, but the squad lacks enough of him.
