Rio Ferdinand makes Chelsea prediction ahead of stunning Romelu Lukaku transfer

England defender Rio Ferdinand has hailed ‘elite goalscorer’ and says Chelsea will be an ‘absolute threat’ in the Premier League after landing the striker.

Lukaku, 28, will arrive in London on Monday night to complete his £97.5m move to Stamford Bridge, having completed the first part of his medical in Milan on Sunday.

Belgium’s record goalscorer appeared set to stay at Inter Milan, where he won the Serie A title last season, and insisted he was focused on the Italian club in June.

But the frontman has been impressed by Chelsea’s pursuit and asked Inter Milan to strike a deal with his former club, which ended up at almost £100m.

Ferdinand says ‘elite goalscorer’ Lukaku ‘guarantees’ Chelsea at least 20 goals this season – and insists he could ‘bang in 35 goals’ – and believes his presence means the Blues are title contenders.

Speaking on the FIVE YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: ‘I’ve spoken to him recently and he’s hungry man. He hasn’t confirmed to me that he’s signing for Chelsea but he just said this season, he’s hungry.

‘I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.

‘He’s got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fanbase at Old Trafford doubted him. A lot of people weren’t too dissatisfied when he left.

‘He will be sitting there and looking in the diary to see when that Old Trafford game is and he will want to unload.

guarantees you 20 goals, minimum. He guarantees you that. He’s scored goals wherever he’s been, he’s an elite goalscorer, it’s as simple as that.

‘If he gets the chances that Timo Werner got last year, he bangs 30-35 goals, it’s as simple as that. I think Werner will still be vital for them with how he runs off the ball and creates space.

‘Chelsea have heavy artillery up front now, a real mix of talent, all different type of players, a real good blend. Lukaku going there makes them an absolute threat to win the title. They could win it.’
