Inter Milan set £100m asking price for Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku
METRO report the latest on Chelsea’s search for a striker. According to the outlet, the club have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku, The report suggests that the player is open to the move. However, Inter Milan have already rejected two bids from Chelsea.
The recent development suggests that the Italian club have privately admitted that they need to balance the books. The club will now reluctantly accept a bid of around £100m for the Belgian striker. The London club’s confidence is growing as there is hope that they might be able to talk Inter down from their valuation.
Do Chelsea need Romelu Lukaku?
Romelu Lukaku is coming off one of his most productive campaigns ever. He made 36 appearances for Inter in Serie A, racking up 24 goals and 10 assists in the league. The player was named as the best overall MVP of the season as he helped Inter clinch the league title.
He continued his hot form at the UEFA Euro 2020. Lukaku scored 4 goals in 5 appearances at the tournament.
The player would be no stranger to the Premier League. Lukaku spent 7 years in England playing for Chelsea, West Brom (loan), Everton and Manchester United.
One could say Lukaku would be a brilliant signing for Thomas Tuchel. Despite European glory last season, the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Tammy Abraham were underwhelming.
