Chelsea signed up Romelu Lukaku during the summer, as the Blues went all out to splash £97.5m on the Belgian.
Chelsea were in dire need of a striker, and the signing of Lukaku was meant to guarantee goals — with Jorginho having topped Chelsea’s scoring chart last season.
The 28-year-old started the season well, scoring three goals in his opening three Premier League appearances. But the goals have since dried up, and the Belgian has had a torrid time as he has missed games from October to December.
Premier League legend, Alan Shearer, believes Lukaku is the most important signing in the Premier League, and his signing was meant to help Chelsea land the Premier League title.
Shearer believes Lukaku must now return and start firing again for the Blues, if Thomas Tuchel’s side want to keep up with Manchester City.
“Lukaku, who I saw as probably the most important signing that any club made last summer, has not started a Premier League game since 16 October,” Shearer wrote.
“He has not scored in the top flight since 11 September, but Chelsea were coping pretty well without him until recently. Not any more.
“Clearly, to get back on track they need Lukaku to start firing again, and quickly, or for someone else to provide the spark they need.
“They looked flat against Wolves at the weekend and although they are still right in the mix for the title, they cannot afford to fall much further behind.”
