The 21-year-old liked up with the Blues from Belgian giants Anderlecht in 2011, but so far has made just one appearance in the Premier League for the club since then.
During that time, though, the Belgian powerhouse has impressed with back-to-back loan spells with West Bromwich Albion and Everton, proving that he is a more than able goalscorer at the top level.
He has two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge, but has been linked with a loan move to Atletico Madrid as Chelsea reportedly close on the signing of Diego Costa from the Spanish champions.
Lukaku had been hoping to have his future resolved before the World Cup kicks if in under a fortnight, but has confessed that he is prepared to wait, but made no secret of his desire to be given a chance to impress the Blues faithful.
“It would be nice to get clarity beforehand, but that will not happen, so I’m completely focused on the World Cup,” he said..
“You know, I still have a two-year contract at the biggest club in England, because that’s Chelsea. So I still hope to play there. Chelsea have a good coach.”
“I have been working hard on my game over the past few months and everything seems to be coming out now.
“I have a good feeling about this competition.”
