Another Forward To Chelsea

ESPN Soccernet - On The Move: "20.40: Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku has confirmed he will be having his Chelsea medical tomorrow. Just to recap: the clubs have agreed a fee, but he's still to pass his medical or agree personal terms (although reports in Belgium on Friday suggested he may have already agreed terms)."

It would appear that Lukaku is on the move to Chelsea in the very near future leaving one to wonder not about the wisdom of the move in isolation (he's apparently the next big thing) but of their priorities. They seem to need midfielders with upside much more than they need yet another forward who won't see any playing time. On the plus side, you have to figure that Sturridge will be on his way somewhere he'll get a game (e.g., back to Bolton, Newcastle, Spurs in part exchange for Modric).

Since this one seems like it is real (having a medical) vs. being speculation it seems OK to write about it.
