Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku has reportedly notified Inter Milan management that he wants to leave the club if they receive a suitable offer. Chelsea previously tabled £85m for the 28-year-old, but it was rejected by the Serie A champions earlier this week. Inter Milan was confident of keeping the former Manchester United and Everton striker after the player made it clear that he was happy in the club.
Romelu Lukaku Says He Wants Chelsea Return
However, it is understood the Belgian has had second thoughts and is now keen to return to Chelsea, whose books he was on from 2011-2014. The Italian club might be forced to let the player go following their financial issues, so now the focus will be on whether the Blues will be willing to increase their opening offer to land the striker this summer.
It is understood Chelsea was prepared to include Spanish defender Marcos Alonso as part of the first bid. Romelu Lukaku first played for the Blues between 2011 and 2014, making 15 appearances, but was sold to Everton after an impressive season on loan.
