Chelsea set to receive fresh approach for player

A forward looks set to leave Chelsea this summer.

A plethora of players have already left Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea’s total sales for the summer is around the £180m mark after Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kalidou Koulibaly, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic were all allowed to leave.

Hakim Ziyech, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marc Cucurella, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson Odoi have also been tipped for potential summer exits.

Now, it appears Romelu Lukaku will be joining that already extensive exit list.

Fabrizio Romano has reported that Inter Milan have decided to approach Chelsea again for Romelu Lukaku and negotiations will restart in the next few days.

No fee is mentioned in the update, but it is claimed that talks will take place around a loan with a mandatory buy option, but the deal is still in the early stages.

Lukaku had an impressive first stint with the Serie A side, scoring 23 and assisting two in 36 league ties in 2019/20. He then netted 24 and assisted 10 in 36 league matches during 2020/21. Lukaku’s second stint in Italy did not go to plan, though. He scored just 10 league goals (14 in all competitions) and capped off his loan spell by missing some big chances in the Champions League final.
