    Chelsea prepare new bid for Romelu Lukaku, fee touted would meet Inter’s reported asking price

    Another Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea update has now surfaced late on Tuesday evening

    Chelsea linked with Lukaku

    Chelsea’s links to Lukaku this summer emerged in early June, when it was claimed that Roman Abramovich was personally pushing for the deal.

    The chatter surrounding a potential return to Stamford Bridge for the Belgian had since subsided in the weeks following this news.

    Lukaku himself even came out and confirmed he would be staying with the Italian champions back in June:

    “Yes, I am staying. I feel good at Inter.”

    However, reports began to emerge on Monday claiming that Chelsea had not get given up hope of signing the forward this summer.

    Chelsea to make fresh bid for Lukaku

    And on Tuesday, we have seen a whole host of fresh updates emerge throughout the day.

    First up, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Inter turned down an offer from Chelsea which was believed to be 100 million euros plus Marcos Alonso:

    Then, later in the day, the Telegraph reported that Inter want around 100 million pounds to sell their top-scorer from the 2020/21 campaign:

    And now, late on Tuesday evening, the aforementioned Romano is back with another update.

    Romano reports that Chelsea are preparing a new bid to sign Lukaku, which is expected to be around 120-130 million euros.

    And if the above report from the Telegraph proves true, this should be enough to convince the Nerazzurri to part with Lukaku as 120 million euros roughly converts to just over 100 million pounds – the figure the Telegraph claim Inter would sell Lukaku for.
