Sullivan says West Ham keen on Chelsea striker Lukaku

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has admitted interest in Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Sullivan believes he can convince Lukaku to remain in the capital and play at Upton Park alongside Andy Carroll, who could be about to secure a permanent £15million switch from Liverpool.

Sullivan told the Daily Mirror: "Lukaku would be a loan again. We'd maybe buy him a year later if Chelsea decide they don't want him.

"If we sign Andy, it would be a record signing for the club. He and Romelu would be devastating. The best strike-force outside of the top six or seven.

"Lukaku has been amazing for West Brom this season and I'd hope that he would prefer to live in London."
