Nicol: Lukaku doesn't fit Chelsea style

Both the Blues and Manchester United have been linked with the striker that finished second in the Golden Boot race with 25 goals in 37 appearances.

However, Nicol, a former Liverpool defender, isn't convinced Lukaku will be able to fill Diego Costa's role, with the Spaniard reportedly on his way out.

"Lukaku for me doesn't fit into a team that predominantly spends most of the time in and around the opposition's box, he's a guy that needs space in my opinion," Nicol said on ESPN FC.

"If you look at Chelsea last year, one of the things I loved watching was Costa and (Eden) Hazard together, playing little one-twos and playing with each other in a small space.

"Lukaku can't do that so if they do get Lukaku, that would change a lot for me the way Chelsea attack."
