Romelu Lukaku has completed his medicals on Sunday August 9 ahead of his Chelsea return. If every paper work is completed on time, the Belgian could be in the running to make his official debut on Wednesday against Villarreal.
The arrival of the 28-year-old man mountain will definitely change Chelsea’s attack as we know it. And here is a look at how the Chelsea attack could look like with Lukaku in there.
Option 1 – With the Germans
Kai Havertz have proved he can score goals when needed. The German is not a physical player but highly technical – for that he’s expected to play a lot of games for Chelsea next season.
Timo Werner can play on the flanks due to his pace and ability to run at defenders.
The two Germans can partner Lukaku to create a terrifying front three for the Blues.
Option 2 – With traditional wingers
Let’s face it, Kai would rather player behind the striker and Werner prefers to play as a centre-forward. Tuchel could decide to play traditional wingers instead of the Germans.
That would open the door for Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic to play regularly.
Pulisic can be quite direct. He has the pace and power to shoot. As for Ziyech, his technique is simply world-class.
Option 3 – With a Playmaker
The most creative player at Chelsea is Mason Mount. Some may argue that, but you simply have to watch the Champions League final to understand this narrative.
To get more assists out of Mount, Tuchel may have to play him as further up the pitch as possible. That would mean he plays in our new attacking triumvirate.
Werner could make up the trio on the left.
