Chelsea are set to increase their bid from £90 million to £105 for Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku who they are eager to sign.
The Blues needs a striker who can supply them goals with Timo Werner unable to live up to expectations after spending huge to get him from RB Leipzig.
Chelsea will be looking to go big by splashing £105 million to bring back Romelu Lukaku who they sold to Everton for £28 million before Man United bought him for £73.
Thomas Tuchel will be hoping the deal can pull through as he will be needing a good striker if they stand a chance to win the Premier League title next season.
The Blues might be willing to smash their transfer record for the Inter striker.
Chelsea could target Romelu Lukaku this summer despite a £105 million ($146m/€121m) price tag set by Inter, according to the Daily Mail.
Lukaku has reached a new level in Italy over the past two seasons, scoring 44 league goals and supplying 11 assists.
He’s far above the player he was as a youngster at Stamford Bridge, and he could be seen as the type of peak performer up top to give the Blues the clinical finishing they have often lacked.
He’s not the only transfer option for the Blues, however, as Harry Kane and Erling Haaland remain in the picture.
