He's home.

Ten years after he first rocked up at Stamford Bridge, Romelu Lukaku is once again a Chelsea player, with the Blues parting with a club-record £97.5m to bring the 28-year-old Serie A winner back to London.

It's safe to say Twitter was a little excited about the whole thing.

Chelsea spent last season crying out for a bona-fide goalscorer in attack, and in Lukaku, they've brought in one of the best in the business.

Having watched Jorginho claim the club's top scorer prize with a measly seven strikes last year, Chelsea fans are hopeful that their team could be completely different this time around. Not only do they have someone who can score goals, but they have Lukaku.

We've all seen the video of him crying when he first visited the Bridge as a kid. Now, he's finally going to get a fair shot at realising his dream.

So, what can we expect from Chelsea this year?

The reigning European champions, Chelsea looked like one of the best teams in the country last season following the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, but all they were lacking was a striker.

They've finally got someone who wants to put the ball in the back of the net, so does that mean trophies are on the way?

To make this even more fun for Chelsea, a lot of the immediate response to the announcement was from frustrated Manchester United fans.

However, the United supporters weren't upset with the signing, but rather that it had come before their long-awaited acquisition of Raphael Varane.
