Romelu Lukaku confirms his Chelsea shirt number & provides fitness update ahead of Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku joins Chelsea

After spells at Everton, Manchester United and Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku has once again returned to Chelsea.

The Blues officially confirmed that they had re-signed Lukaku last week:

The 28-year-old is believed to have set Chelsea back €115m, which works out at around £97.5m – a club-record fee for Chelsea.

Lukaku on his fitness

Now, after officially becoming a Chelsea player once more, Lukaku has, on Wednesday, taken part in his first press conference since returning to the English capital.

During the presser, Lukaku was drawn on his fitness ahead of Chelsea’s meeting with Arsenal this coming Sunday.

And in a boost for Chelsea, the Belgian confirmed he is fit and ready to go:

Lukaku was also quizzed on adapting to Chelsea. However, he does not believe he will need to adapt too much because he already plays Chelsea’s 3-4-3 system with Belgium:

“It is about communication, I am open-minded, I ask my teammates questions, where they want the ball, so the next few weeks is important to be open with my mindset. I don’t think I need to adapt too much because I play the same system with Belgium.”

Elsewhere, the 28-year-old confirmed that he is Chelsea’s new no.9, which had previously been a number held by now Roma star, Tammy Abraham:
