Lukaku would consider loan deal

Romelu Lukaku is eager to make an impact at Chelsea in the forthcoming season but accepts he may be forced to go out on loan in search of first-team football.

• Hammers keen on Stankovic, Lukaku

Lukaku, 19, signed for Chelsea from Anderlecht last summer for £18 million but made just one Premier League start during his debut season in England.

The Belgium international has been linked with a temporary move away from the Blues for the 2012-13 campaign, with West Ham understood to be interested.

Lukaku, who scored two goals in a 4-2 win over Seattle Sounders this week, told Sky Sports News: "If I can stay here at Chelsea and be part of the starting XI and score a lot of goals for the club and make the team win, that's good for me and for the club as well.

"But if I can go on loan and play in another team and score goals and then come back and explode it will be good as well. I just keep my feet grounded and work hard each day and then after the tour we will see what will happen."

Reflecting on last season, Lukaku added: "It was difficult, there was a positive side and a negative side. The negative side is that I didn't play as much as I wanted, but the positive side is that I improved my overall game a lot.

"That's more important as a 19-year-old, to improve each day, and that's something that I did last year."
