Tottenham are ‘considering a move for Romelu Lukaku’, but only if they can bring him in on loan.

The Belgian has become something of a forgotten man at Stamford Bridge, despite arriving for a club-record £97.5million fee just two years ago.

Lukaku spent last season on loan at Inter Milan, and was expected to make a permanent departure before reports stated the 30-year-old preferred a move to rivals Juventus failed to endear him to fans.

Lukaku has been training alone since returning to Chelsea with Mauricio Pochettino making it clear that he will not factor in the club plans for the current campaign.

However, according to reports from Italy, the Belgian forward may still ply his trade in the Premier League this season.

Tutto Mercato claim that Spurs are interested in loaning the 30-year-old, with Daniel Levy unwilling to agree a permanent fee for a striker who is already 30.

They also report that Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun would be their preferred option up front given his youth, but they are likely to miss out on him amid links with Monaco.

After months of speculation regarding his future at the club longtime Spurs talisman Harry Kane departed North London earlier this month, joining Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Despite the expectation that Spurs would look to immediately reinvest the funds raised by Kane’s departure into a like-for-like replacement, Ange Postecoglou revealed that his current priority remains moving on his squad’s deadwood.

‘We can’t just keep acquiring players when we’ve got too big of a squad as it is at the moment,’ Postecoglou said speaking prior to Saturday’s victory over Manchester United.

‘It affects your training, it affects players themselves because ultimately they want to play and be involved. It’s not so much one has to happen for the other but our focus at the moment is to try to trim the squad down and then see where that takes us in terms of reinforcements. 

‘We’re constantly assessing that on a daily basis and there’s still two weeks to go in the window. I’m sure you’ll see some movements.’
