Chelsea have been strongly linked with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku for two seasons in a row, but Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has warned that the 23-year-old still has to improve on his hold-up play.

“I think the big clubs are buying potential, someone who they think they can make into a world-class player,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“He’s got the potential to be world-class, there’s no doubt. But there’s other parts of his game that are lacking.

“I heard him say about there’s nothing to learn from Harry Kane, well Kane’s all-around hold-up play, and bringing other team-mates into play, is far better than his.

“He makes far too many mistakes in that area of his game.

“He’s got the power and pace to absolutely hurt defenders all game long, but he needs to have an anger in him.”
