Resolve Lukaku’s future
There have been signs that Lukaku is slowly finding his best form again after three goals in as many games, but his return to Stamford Bridge has been disappointing on the whole. No one will be more keen for him to succeed than Granovskaia, but if the Belgian is still keen on returning to Italy, cutting their losses will be the biggest priority.
If the 28-year-old leaves, it means Chelsea would again need to find a replacement. Robert Lewandowski would be an obvious option, but the 33-year-old has his sights set on a move to Barcelona. That could open the door for another free transfer, with Paulo Dybala set to leave Juventus as a free agent.
But a target man may be required as a like-for-like replacement, it could be that Chelsea join the race for Darwin Nunez if they sell Lukaku. But right now, there is a big question mark hanging above his head.
