Chelsea close in on £100 million signing as Italian giants looking to sell in summer

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Prolific Romelu Lukaku could be up for grabs this summer as Inter Milan look to balance their books, with reports that Chelsea are ready to bring him back to the Bridge.

Despite going unbeaten since taking over the club a few months ago, Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he needs to improve certain areas of the pitch in the coming transfer window to turn this side into Premier League winners.

And with the likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud all failing to impress in front of goal this season, It is pretty clear that the German coach wants to add a premium striker to the attack.

Lukaku, 27, has been a massive hit in Italy, scoring 42 times in 62 league games for Inter, who are currently on course to secure their first Serie A title since 2010.

And his record on the international stage is equally impressive. His penalty in Belgium’s 3-1 victory over Wales in midweek made it 58 goals in 90 appearances for FIFA’s top-ranked country.

As with the whole of the football world, the COVID-19 outbreak has hit the Italian club’s finances hard, and with the Italian giants reportedly ready to balance the books in the summer, they would be open to the idea of letting Lukaku leave.

However, he would not come cheap as reports have also indicated that the Italians want £100 million for the powerhouse

Lukaku was never really given a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge, but he has made a very good career for himself away from the club, so even though we are interested, he would surely not want to go back to a club that failed to keep their promises the first time around.

It will be interesting to see which striker Tuchel gets in the summer window, but we would be very shocked to see him arrive at the Bridge
