Romelu Lukaku: Chelsea hold positive talks over deal for Inter Milan striker

Chelsea have held more constructive talks in their attempt to re-sign Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku and there is real hope this can lead to an agreement between all parties.

Chelsea have yet to increase their second offer to Inter for the Belgium international – which was £85m (€100m) plus left-back Marcos Alonso – but there is a growing confidence a deal can be agreed.

Inter are expected to agree to sell Lukaku if the reigning European champions offer a deal worth £102m (€120m).


Sky Sports News reported on Wednesday Lukaku has told Inter he would like them to accept a suitable offer for him from his former club.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel refused to be drawn into questions surrounding interest in Romelu Lukaku but did admit they are looking for a striker with a similar profile to Olivier Giroud who has left the club this summer

Speaking after his side’s pre-season friendly against Tottenham on Wednesday evening, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel refused to directly address the transfer situation but described Lukaku as a “fantastic player”.

“I will not talk about players who don’t play in my squad,” Tuchel said. “And Romelu Lukaku is a fantastic player but he’s a player from Inter and it’s with all the respect I will not talk about him in this situation.
