Tuchel wants Romelu Lukaku as Zhang is back in Milan to discuss the transfer opportunities for the club. In fact, the decision on transfers will determine the period of Conte’s stay at Inter. Furthermore, Tuchel has made it clear that a top-class center-forward is the need of the hour. And Chelsea should focus on filling this position in the summer. Lukaku was a part of Chelsea in his early years in football. And undoubtedly, he has come a long way.
Lukaku is currently one of the best strikers in Europe and has scored 29 goals in all leagues so far. The Belgian started his career with Anderlecht in 2009. He joined Chelsea in 2011 for a reported fee of €12 million. He did not play much during his debut season, and the next season he went out on loan to West Bromwich Albion. The 27- year old was out on a season-long loan before finally signing a deal with Everton. While he went to Everton on a season-long loan, they signed him on a five-year deal in the next season.
Tuchel wants Romelu Lukaku who is an affordable pick for them
Lukaku joined Inter in the 2019-20 season. And, under Conte’s guidance, he has emerged as one of the best strikers in the world. Lukaku has established his name in the field of football in the last season. Currently, he is just four goals away from football legend Ronaldo Nazario in Serie A. The duo, LuLa, that is Lukaku and Lautaro has played a huge role in Inter’s position in Serie A.
Chelsea have accepted defeat in the race for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. Thus, Lukaku is the player they have in mind at the moment. Although they’ve also shown interest in Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspurs, the Belgian is more pocket-friendly for the Blues. Considering Inter’s position, they might have to sell some important players, and if the €105 million mark is met, Lukaku might bid goodbye to the Nerazzurri.
