(Image): Romelu Lukaku’s tumbling value shows Chelsea are in a deep hole

Romelu Lukaku came to Chelsea as a €100m player, and is now worth just 40% of that.

That’s according to TransferMarkt’s latest update, where his increasing age, worsening stats and horrendous contract situation have all played in to his “market value” on the site falling to €40m.

He’s finally getting some minutes in the Inter first team on his loan, but it’s hard to see that having any significant impact unless something drastic (like 5 hattricks in 10 games) happens in these final months of the season.
