Chelsea planning second Romelu Lukaku transfer bid after £85m offer rejected

Burley told ESPN FC: “I think if you’re Chelsea and you’re gung-ho to get Haaland and you don’t think you can pull it off this year, but possibly do it in 12 months time, I think I bide my time and I go out and maybe buy a shorter-term option who is cheaper.

“I’m not suggesting [him], but Tottenham are looking at Danny Ings who has got a goal every two games at Southampton.

“Somebody who can just stick the ball in the back of the net for you short term and will guarantee you off the bench or starting some goals, and wait and bide your time.

“Rather than going splashing your money on somebody like Lukaku, who’s scored a lot of goals but clearly is not on their radar as a first-choice striker.”
