ChelseaHopes to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan have hit a setback with the forward hinting that he is not looking to leave the Italian giants.
The 27-year-old came close to snagging a trophy at Inter last year, having tasted defeat in the Europa League final in his debut season in Italy, where he scored 34 goals in 51 games, rebuilding his reputation after a mixed period at Manchester United. .
Asked if this was the best season of his career, the Belgian responded by hinting that he was happy to stay at Inter by targeting the club’s future success.
“Last year was good too, but yes it was the best of my career. It’s wonderful and I hope to continue like this. I want to thank everyone, I am really so happy. ”
Although Lukaku is happy to stay at Inter, the Italian club’s poor finances due to Covid mean he could be forced to offload his assets – with Chelsea ready to pounce.

However, it may take an offer of at least £ 105million to get Lukaku away from the San Siro, as the Blues have also shown interest in Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.
