Chelsea secure De Bruyne and close in on Lukaku

The Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been taking a more active role in organising transfers for his club and it seems that the owner of the Stamford Bridge club has set his sights on two young Belgian League players namely Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Chelsea have had an offer of €4 million for De Bruyne informally accepted by his club, RC Genk, with a deal for the 19-year-old to be finalised once the transfer period opens.

Chelsea has a previous offer of €6 million turned down last year. But RC Genk are now ready to sell the player who still has four years left on his contract.

However De Bruyne himself is still waiting to agree upon a deal because Chelsea want to loan the player to Dutch side Vitesse before he can join Chelsea. Manchester City are also thought to be interested in the Belgian midfielder and De Bruyne could favour them if they allow him to move straight to England.

Lukaku has been compared to Didier Drogba and has attracted attention across Europe, including from the likes of Inter and AC Milan. Lukaku’s club, Anderlecht, are looking to receive £17.5 million for the striker who only has 16 months left on his contract. Although Chelsea are thought to not want to pay more than half of that figure.
