Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is determined to fight for his place at Stamford Bridge after spending last season on loan at West Brom.
The 20-year-old forward impressed many with his performances at The Hawthorns, scoring 17 goals in 35 league appearances but he is now ready to prove himself at Chelsea.
With the arrival of Jose Mourinho, the Belgian is even keener to impress and is not interested in leaving the club again.
“We had a good talk and now it’s up to me,” he told Sky Sports News.
“My mind is in Chelsea now and I have come back to do well in pre-season and if I do a good pre-season, I think I will have a place in the squad and hopefully in the starting XI.
“Last year I had a great season at West Brom and I think have the qualities to do it here, but it is up to me.
“If I don’t do well here, then loan again.”
The Belgium international made 12 appearances in his debut season at Chelsea in the 2011-12campaign, but failed to score.
