Chelsea is looking to bring Inter Milan’s striker Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge on a fee of £90 million says report.
The Blues are on the hunt for a new striker at the end of the season and face fierce competition for their top target, Borussia Dortmund youngster Erling Haaland.
According to the Sun, the London club are pessimistic about their chances of signing the Norwegian and may instead turn to a familiar face.
Lukaku fits the profile of striker they are looking for, possessing the mental strength required to spearhead their attack next season.
The 27-year-old is on the brink of firing Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010, and has scored 27 goals in 40 games in all competitions this season.
Tammy Abraham has failed to persuade manager Thomas Tuchel of his ability, while Timo Werner continues to struggle in England following his £48m arrival from Germany,s RB Leipzig last summer.
Lukaku was with Chelsea between 2011 and 2014
The Belgian later spent two seasons at Manchester United from 2017 to 2019 before sealing a £73m move to Inter, where he has been a huge success.
Lukaku has scored 61 goals in 91 games for the Italian giants altogether, leading them to the Europa League final in his first season before this term’s title charge.
