Zola, however, admitted that he likes Chelsea’s squad the way they were during the 2020/21 season.
He also worried about Timo Werner, who does ‘dirty job’ for Chelsea if Lukaku eventually signs for Chelsea this summer.
DAILY POST reports that Chelsea are close to finalizing a deal for Lukaku this summer.
Speaking on the development, Zola told Tuttomercatoweb, “Chelsea had an extraordinary season last year, but the focus was always on the fact that they lacked a goalscorer.
“They often created chances, and in some games, they were quite penalized. Lukaku comes in to fill that gap, but I liked Chelsea the way they were.
“Werner did a dirty job for everyone else, and the reason they won the Champions League is because he put others in a position to do well.
“I am curious to see Lukaku, but I liked Chelsea the way they were.”
