Chelsea is now eager to land a move for the Belgium striker who is now being seen as the main target and not Erling Haaland which has been a problem for them since trying to get the Norwegian from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Another bid is being prepared by Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku who could be moving to Stamford Bridge for the second time after his first spell ended in some loan move before he was sold and ended up with Inter Milan where he was on fire last season.
According to Romano Fabrizio, Chelsea is set to make another bid of around €120/130 million to Inter Milan after the first offer which was €100 million including Marcos Alonso was being turned down without consideration.

Romelu Lukaku is now being seen as the option which they could be getting to sign this summer with a new offer in place and set to be officially brought forward to Inter Milan who will be looking to consider if the price is right for them to accept.
The deal will see the Belgian earn an increase in his salary from €7 million to €12M if a deal is reached with the Champions League winners who will be willing to go all out this time in making sure they can complete the move.
