Chelsea, Tottenham fans desperate for Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane swap deal

A number of Chelsea and Tottenham fans are open to the idea of swapping Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane, particularly in the wake of the Belgian striker’s recent bombshell interview.

Romelu Lukaku’s future at Chelsea has been up in the air ever since footage emerged of him criticising the club during a recent interview on Italian TV last week.

The Belgian striker, who joined the Blues in a £97.5 million deal in the summer, revealed that he was unhappy with life at Stamford Bridge and wasn’t a big fan of the system manager Thomas Tuchel was using.

His comments sent shockwaves around the club and the 28-year-old was left at home for Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, with Tuchel insisting the “noise was too big” to include him.

It’s understood the duo will meet at the club’s training ground today to discuss the matter in detail as fans hold their breath to find out whether the former Inter Milan striker has a future in west London or not.

According to the Daily Star, Lukaku could force a sensational move to Tottenham Hotspur to reunite with former boss Antonio Conte.

While Chelsea are unlikely to sanction the sale of their record-signing to a fierce rival, they could be brought to the table with talk of an ambitious swap-deal involving Harry Kane – and fans from both sides appear open to the idea.

“Lukaku for Kane. Make it happen @ChelseaFC,” one Blues fan wrote.

“Lukaku to Tottenham and Kane to Chelsea. Sounds like a good deal,” wrote another.

“I’d take Lukaku all day if Kane still wants to leave. Conte will get the best out of him,” said a Tottenham fan.

Another said: “Kane for Lukaku? Do it Levy!”

Before joining Tottenham, Conte hit out at Chelsea for failing to play to Lukaku’s strengths, despite the Belgian making a promising start to his second stint at the club before being sidelined for two months due to injury.

Kane meanwhile has struggled for consistency and goals ever since a move to Manchester City failed to materialise last summer.

While a move to Chelsea would likely sever the positive relationship he still has with Tottenham’s fans, the England skipper is running out of opportunities to win trophies and a change of scenery might be just what he needs following a rather stagnant last few months.
