PL too strong and too fast for Lukaku – Mikel

The Blues’ record signing endured a frustrating 2021-22 campaign and is now pushing for a return to Italy.

Jon Obi Mikel has weighed in on Romelu Lukaku’s struggles at Chelsea, insisting the Premier League is “too strong” and “too fast” for the striker.

Chelsea spent a club-record £98 million ($120m) to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge from Inter last summer, having seen him fire the Italian giants to Scudetto glory in 2020-21.

Lukaku only managed to hit 15 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions for the Blues last season as he struggled to live up to his price tag, and Mikel has now suggested that his game is better suited to Italian football.
