Chelsea legend Joe Cole believes new Chelsea signing Romelu Lukaku will have a tramsformative impact on Chelsea’s forward line.
However, Cole believes Lukaku might not find English defences as accomodating at those in Italy, claiming Serie A is currently levels below even the Spanish and French leagues.
Cole told BBC: “That was the question mark against him (if he could score in the big games) and let’s be honest, the Italian league is not… I’d put the Italian league behind the French league and the Spanish league at the moment.
“But I feel there is a desire now and maturity in his game, he gets it and he’s so direct. I think they’ve got him at his peak.
“Sometimes you get myths about players but he’ll definitely score goals and I’ll think he’ll make the difference. I think he can do it in the big games and I think he will.”
