Romelu Lukaku, the on loan West Bromwich Albion forward, says parent club Chelsea are in constant contact over the Belgian forward's loan spell at The Hawthorns but admits he is yet to discover what next season has in store.

Lukaku took his tally in the Premier League for West Brom to 12 goals in 12 starts after a double helped beat Sunderland on Saturday.

With Chelsea having encountered problems in attack this season, Lukaku's sporadic appearances for Albion suggests the teenager could fill an attacking role upon his return at the end of the season.

However, Lukaku, despite being in constant contact with The Blues, says he is in the dark over next season as he seeks to continue his rapid improvement.

Lukaku has scored 12 Premier League goals this season.

"I don't know what Chelsea will decide," he said. "We'll have a chat about how to build up a good career for me there.

"There are a lot of clever people over there and they're seeing that I am playing in a good way.

"Every 10 days I have a meeting with Chelsea. Sometimes they just come and talk with me and say what I have to improve, if I go back there I have to be like this or like that.

"There is a lot to improve on. I am only 19 so I can improve loads. They will see maybe I need one more year or maybe I don't. I have a great understanding with them."

Chelsea's strikers have struggled for regular goals in the Premier League this season with Fernando Torres having netted just seven, while Demba Ba has scored just once since his arrival from Newcastle United in January.

The club allowed Daniel Sturridge leave in January while Didier Drogba, scorer of the winning penalty in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich, and Salomon Kalou were both released at the end of last season.

The lack of fire power has meant the onus on scoring goals have been left to the likes of Frank Lampard and Juan Mata and has significantly impacted on the club's exit from three cup competitions this season, as well as a disappointing season domestically.
