Romelu Lukaku looking to leave Chelsea

Marca journalist Juan Castro believes the imminent arrival of Atletico players Diego Costa, Tiago and Filipe Luis make Chelsea favourites for the Premier League next season.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku says he wants to leave the club this summer and hopes that a good performance for Belgium at the World Cup will impress potential suitors.

Lukaku, 21, joined the Blues from Anderlecht in 2011 for around 20 million pounds, but has struggled to make an impact on the first-team despite two prolific loan spells at West Brom and Everton.

The striker netted 15 Premier League goals at Goodison Park this season, but it appears Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is not keen to throw him into action yet with the arrival of 32 million pound Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa expected in the coming days.

Mourinho has been critical of his strikeforce -- Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba -- this season with big changes expected, but Lukaku is not going to play second fiddle to anyone.

"You know Chelsea, every year they buy a new top striker," he told reporters. "I remember me coming into the dressing room last year and seeing Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba and going, 'Whoah! What's happening here?'

"But no problem. Many clubs are interested in me. At this stage, I have to look to myself. I have to play a good World Cup. That's very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer. And I must be one of them. Chelsea know my point of view."
