Chelsea are apparently getting progressively certain of striking a deal for Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku during this current summer’s transfer window.
The 28-year-old enjoyed a great 2020-21 campaign at club level, scoring 30 times in 44 appearances in all competitions, registering 24 for Serie A as Inter won the title.
The Belgium international has a contract at San Siro until June 2024, but the Italian champions are probably going to leave part ways with some important players in the impending market because of their financial issues.
Antonio Conte has already left as head coach, with the Italian purportedly being informed regarding the club’s plans to sell various players, and as indicated by the Sunday World, Chelsea are prepared to swoop for Lukaku.
The report guarantees that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to give the go-ahead on a £65m move for the former Manchester United striker.
Lukaku recently played for Chelsea between 2011 and 2014 however battled to make his mark at Stamford Bridge, failing to score in 15 first-team appearances.
The Inter Milan striker has an amazing record in the Premier League, however, scoring 113 times during spells with Everton, Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion.
