There has been constant news regarding the future fates of strikers this week, which is often the case in an international break.
Sergio Aguero announced this will be his last season at Manchester City. Erling Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola is in the midst of a tour of european super clubs offering his client services and Kylian Mbappe is leaving his current employers frustrated at the lack of a new deal being signed.
Now it is the turn of Inter Milan to show their hand as they set their price for Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku, who is seen as a cheaper option than Haaland and Mbappe, is still going to come with a high price tag.
The sum they require, according to Corriere dello Sport, is €120 million.

Lukaku has scored 25 goals this season for Antonio Conte as Inter look to win their first Serie A title since 2010. He is under contract until 2024, but as he moves closer to 30, now may be the time to cash in, especially if they are forced to sell players this summer.
The former Manchester United striker, who moved to Inter for £74 million in August 2019, has been linked to moves to Manchester City and a return to Chelsea recently. Chelsea of course tried to buy the player in 2017, when they were managed by Antonio Conte, but he opted to move to the Red Devils, and Chelsea purchased Alvaro Morata.
Conte has said that he wants the player to remain at Inter as long as he does.
This is yet another story that is set to rumble on.
