Torres And Lukaku Compete For Spot Alongside Costa

With Diego Costa’s signing having already been officially announced and confirmed to the public it does not look like Chelsea would have to look around for another player that can strengthen the attacking department of the squad.

Diego Costa was expected to be partnered up with Fernando Torres as the future of Romelu Lukaku still remains uncertain. The Belgian player was performing in the past season with Everton on a loan deal but now that the contract is over he would be making his return to Stanford Bridge but the 21 year old forward once said that if he does indeed go back to Chelsea it would only be as a starting player.

So far, Lukaku has only made 10 league appearances for Chelsea and he wants to have a guaranteed spot in the starting lineup of Jose Mourinho much like his time playing with Everton where he appeared on 31 matches.

Inter Milan has launched offers towards Fernando Torres but the Spanish forward wants to remain at Stanford Bridge and prove why Chelsea was willing to pay €50 million in order to sign him which means that there will be a competition between Torres and Lukaku to find out which player will be playing alongside Diego Costa who has his place assured.

But things might get even more competitive with the recent rumors that are linking Chelsea with Didier Drogba as the Ivorian attacker is being taken into consideration by Jose Mourinho as well as the staff members of the club.

Some time ago Ryan Giggs had a role in Manchester United to play as a player-coach and this is what Didier Drogba is believed to perform with Chelsea if he indeed to come back to Stanford Bridge. The place that saw him winning a number of glorious titles including: 3 Premier League trophies, 4 FA Cups and the Champions League but with his possible return to the Premier League club, there is a possibility of the Ivorian man being able to add more trophies to his name.
