Chelsea Close to getting Striker : £29.7m Bid to Bolster Pochettino Plans


Chelsea is reportedly edging closer to resolving the future of Romelu Lukaku. The striker, who became the club’s record signing in 2021. Faced controversy after a Sky Italia interview and had a somewhat underwhelming season. Scoring only eight league goals. Consequently, Lukaku was loaned back to Inter Milan. During his loan spell, Lukaku showcased his abilities. Scoring 14 goals and contributing seven assists for the Italian side. Inter Milan finished third in the league, won the Coppa Italia, and reached the final of the Champions League.

Inter Milan is eager to secure Romelu Lukaku’s services for a third time. But their initial offer has already been turned down. Chelsea is reportedly aiming to reach a resolution before embarking on their pre-season tour in the USA next week. And there are potentially positive indications of progress in the negotiations.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, a journalist from Sky Italia, Inter Milan is reportedly preparing a new offer for Romelu Lukaku. Rumored to be around €35 million (£29.7 million). The 30-year-old striker is to prioritize a return to the San Siro over potentially more lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia.

Chelsea and their tactics

Furthermore, it is in suggestion that Lukaku will not attend a in schedule meeting on Wednesday morning with Chelsea to discuss his future. Di Marzio claims that there has already been a mutual agreement in reach. Indicating that Lukaku will not be returning to play for Chelsea in the upcoming season.

During his recent opening press conference as Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino commented on Romelu Lukaku’s situation, stating. “All the parties involved are aware of our thoughts. In this case, he needs to return to the squad by the 12th or 13th for the start of pre-season. As with all players, the first step upon their arrival is to visit my office and meet with me. That is what I expect if he remains a Chelsea player.”
