Wolfsburg looking at Lukaku

Wolfsburg general manager Klaus Allofs says his club are prepared to explore the possibility of acquiring Romelu Lukaku.

The highly-rated striker remains tied to a long-term contract at Chelsea, but has spent the past two seasons out on loan.

He has caught the eye in the Premier League at West Bromwich Albion and Everton and will be hoping to do the same at this summer's World Cup finals with Belgium.

Once his participation in that tournament is over, attention will turn to matters regarding his future.

With Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho openly admitting to being in the market for new attacking talent, another loan switch for Lukaku has been mooted.

Numerous clubs are expected to express an interest if the transfer door is opened, and Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg claim they will be among them.

Allofs told Wolfsburger Nachrichten: "We are to sign a striker this summer and we have to wait and see which deal will be feasible in the end."

Asked specifically about interest in Lukaku, he added: "Of course, but we also have other names in mind."
