I will never play for Arsenal – Lukaku
NEWS DIGEST – Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, has said he would “never” sign for Arsenal, following their 2-0 win over the Gunners on Sunday.
Lukaku only completed his return to Stamford Bridge last week, joining in a £97.5million deal from Inter Milan.
The 28-year-old scored the first goal at the Emirates, before Reece James doubled the visitors’ lead.
Following the win, Lukaku was asked by beIN Sports about Arsenal supporters, who were calling for him to join the Gunners this summer.
But the Belgium striker smiled before he shook his head and replied: “Never. No chance.”
When asked about his performance against Arsenal in a separate interview with Sky Sports, Lukaku replied: “It is good to start like this, I worked hard throughout the week, we knew it was a big game and we did well.
“As an individual, I want to help the team and I want to continue doing that.”
