Romelu Lukaku inches closer towards Chelsea deal

Chelsea have signed up Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku for €115 million.

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku is getting closer to sign a permanent transfer deal with the London club Chelsea. The Belgian striker is ever close to returning back to Stamford Bridge and will be soon seen wearing the Chelsea blue once again.

The approximate reported fee for Romelu Lukaku is said to be in the range of €115 million. This will make Lukaku the most expensive Premier League signing of all time. This comes just a week after Manchester City broke the bank with a £100 million Jack Grealish signing.

Lukaku who was in stupendous form last season is currently one of the best strikers in Europe. The Belgian tank was an integral part of the Inter Milan team which helped manager Antonio Conte lift the Serie A.

Thomas Tuchel had made it extremely clear that Chelsea was in dire need of a striker in this summer transfer window. Moreover, Thomas Tuchel wanted a proven forward man who can consistently score goals, that is exactly what Romelu Lukaku is capable of doing.

Lukaku has already completed a part of his medicals at Milan and is set to do the rest in London. His journey from Italy to England has been well covered and documented with fans tracking his private jet as well.

Chelsea will be playing against Spanish club Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup this week. The Blues have had good pre-season training and recorded a win against Arsenal. They have never won the UEFA Super Cup and will be looking to change that.
