‘Big Rom is home and he’s about to run wild!’: Chelsea fans claim they CAN win the title this season after signing Lukaku in a £98m deal – and believe the prolific striker will have a ‘Diego Costa-like impact’ at Stamford Bridge

  • Chelsea confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku for £98m from Inter Milan

Chelsea fans are confident they can win the Premier League title after the club confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku. 

The Belgian striker returns to Stamford Bridge seven years after leaving the club, after completing his £98m move from Inter Milan. 

Lukaku scored 24 goals last season to help Inter to the Serie A title and Chelsea supporters believe he can make a similar impact in helping them to their first league title since the 2016-17 campaign.

Twitter user Danny P commented on the news: ‘To sign a striker at this type of a fee shows so much faith in the future. Big Rom is home and he’s about to run wild.’ 

Daniel Hart replied to Chelsea’s video announcing Lukaku on Twitter: ‘I think Chelsea have just won the Premier League title 2021/22.’

James Shearman believes Lukaku will make a similar impact at Stamford Bridge to that of Diego Costa, who scored 20 goals in two league-winning campaigns.

He said: ‘And with that, Chelsea can win the Premier League title. Fully expecting Romelu Lukaku to have a Diego Costa-like impact at Stamford Bridge.’

Sanju Blue commented: ‘He will improve the team so much using his physical strength with his back to goal to hammer home goals and pick out beautiful assists to aid his teammates. 

‘Last year we didn’t have the fortitude and stamina to steamroll less talented PL teams. Now we can do.’

It’s not just Chelsea fans who are confident on their chances as Liverpool fan Stephen tweeted: ‘This puts Chelsea at the front of the title picture imo, they have what they needed and I think they’ll kick on and win the league this season.’ 

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen also got in on the act as he posted: ‘This really is a huge signing from Chelsea. They may be the reigning Champions of Europe but it was glaringly obvious how much they needed a top striker. They’ve not messed about, they’ve gone and got one of the best in.’   

As well as the positivity of Lukaku signing, there were others who made light of Chelsea spending so much on a player they sold for just £28m seven years ago.

Lukaku was sold on to Everton before a spell at Manchester United before he joined Inter Milan. 

Syd Kerrigan commented with several laughing emojis: ‘#Chelsea sold #Lukaku for £28m to Everton and are now buying him back from Inter Milan for £97.5m – a £69.5m loss.’ 

Liam Gray also tweeted: ‘Why is nobody talking about the fact Chelsea signing Lukaku for £97m despite having sold him to Everton for £28m doesn’t seem like great economics.’
