Romelu Lukaku: Chelsea agree to record £ 97.5million transfer deal to re-sign Inter Milan forward

Chelsea have in principle signed a club deal worth £ 97.5million (€ 115million) to re-sign striker Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.

The paperwork is now in the hands of the club’s lawyers and once this is formalized, Lukaku will undergo a medical examination and sign a five-year contract.

Inter have already rejected two offers from Chelsea for the Belgium international, the second of which was worth £ 85million (€ 100million) plus left-back Marcos Alonso.

Lukaku, 28, left Chelsea in 2014 after making just 15 appearances there after arriving at Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht in 2011.

With information on a possible Chelsea return, we take a look at some of Lukaku’s best Premier League goals

One of Europe’s most prolific strikers, Lukaku scored 87 goals in 166 games for Everton between 2014 and 2017 and found the net 42 times in 96 appearances during his two years at Manchester United before signing for Inter in 2019.

He scored 24 Serie A goals last season, helping Inter win their first Scudetto in 11 years as the club ended Juventus’ nine-year reign as top Italian champions.

Inter are set to cut their payrolls this summer and title-winning manager Antonio Conte left the club in May over concerns over plans to cut their budget.

Chelsea are eager to sign a world-class center-forward during the transfer window and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is another target the Blues are interested in.
