Chelsea Lukaku plans not wavered following AVB arrival

Chelsea remain determined to sign Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Sunday Mirror says Chelsea will step up their bid to sign Lukaku despite their change of manager.

The £20m-rated Belgium star, a target since Carlo Ancelotti's time in charge, is also wanted by new boss Andre Villas-Boas.

The clubs have held talks and the 18-year-old has visited Stamford Bridge.

Anderlecht's director of football Herman van Holsbeeck said: "People say the new Chelsea manager doesn't want Lukaku - but they have different information to me.

"But we will only sell him if it is good for both ourselves and the player. We are asking serious money for him."
