Chelsea eye Lukaku to cover new striker spot
Chelsea are ready to ramp up their interest in Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku, who reportedly feels like he has "unfinished business' in London.
European champions Chelsea have been in the market for a new striker this off-season.
The Blues chased Erling Haaland without success and have now set their sights on Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku was on Chelsea's books from 2011 and 2014 but has since become one of the world's best forwards.
Chealsea to table Lukaku's offer
Chelsea are preparing to table a new bid of between £100million and £110m (€120-130m) bid for Inter forward Lukaku claims Fabrizio Romano.
The Blues had an initial £85m (€100m) offer, including Marcos Alonso, for the Belgian striker rejected by Inter.
The Sun claim Lukaku is keen on a return to Chelsea, citing "unfinished business" from his previous stint in London.
