Fiorentina keen on Chelsea ace

West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku

West Brom may miss out on another loan deal for Romelu Lukaku as Italian side Fiorentina are keen on the Chelsea forward.

Lukaku joined the Baggies on loan last summer and has been a huge success at the Hawthorns with 13 Premier League goals to his name to date.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke is believed to be confident of securing the 19-year-old on loan for another season, although any potential deal could depend on whether or not Chelsea manage to bring in a new forward in the summer, with the Blues reportedly leading the race for Radamel Falcao.

Swansea have been credited with an interest but Clarke is convinced he will seal a deal ahead of any Premier League rival if Lukaku is to be loaned out again.

However, Fiorentina have emerged as potential suitors for Lukaku, according to Tuttosport, and they could represent a more attractive option for Chelsea.

La Viola are resigned to losing star striker Stevan Jovetic this summer and have targeted Lukaku as a replacement.

The Italian side will almost certainly be able to offer the Belgian forward European football next season, with Fiorentina still involved in the battle for a Champions League spot, and could move ahead of West Brom in the hunt for Lukaku’s services.
