Former Leeds United striker, Noel Whelan has urged Chelsea to get striker Romelu Lukaku out of Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Whelan believes Lukaku has not done enough in Chelsea shirt, adding that the West London club should cut their losses by selling the former Manchester United star.

Chelsea signed Lukaku last summer from Inter Milan for a club-record fee to end their issues in front of goal.

But the Belgium international hasn’t been at his best and has failed to create the desired impact the Stamford Bridge faithful expected.

And Whelan believes Chelsea should instead use Kai Havertz to replace Lukaku permanently in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

“With the way Havertz is playing – it becomes a very easy decision for Chelsea. I think he has proven that he can be the number nine for them. He’s been brilliant and has shown real quality,” Whelan told Football Insider.

“We all know that he’s a different style of player to Lukaku, but I think there’s been too much controversy with Lukaku. The interview was just disrespectful, but if that is what he wants – then get him out of the football club and off the wage bill.

“They can then go out there, start again, and get someone who can give you the right attitude to fight and succeed in England and in Europe.

“The whispers don’t lie. He’s very lucky to still get the applause he does at Stamford Bridge because he hasn’t shown anywhere near enough in a Chelsea shirt.”
