Lukaku targets Blues first-team place

Romelu Lukaku has said he wants to become a first-team regular at Chelsea after returning to Stamford Bridge following his highly successful season on loan at West Bromwich Albion.

Lukaku, 20, scored 17 goals for the Baggies, winning rave reviews and helping Steve Clarke's side to a top-ten Premier League finish.

The Belgium international said he was focused on forcing his way into Jose Mourinho's plans at Chelsea, telling Sky Sports News: "We spoke - and I want to keep it private because, when you have confidential talks with the manager, it has to stay between you and him. We had a good talk, and now it's up to me."

Lukaku, who joined Chelsea in 2011 and has made eight appearances for them, said he did not want to go out on loan again.

"You never know in football, but my mind is at Chelsea now and I have come back to do well in pre-season," he explained. "If I have a good pre-season, I think I will have a place in the squad, and hopefully in the starting eleven.

"Last year, I had a great season at West Brom, and I think have the qualities to do it here - but it is up to me."
