Chelsea had a sudden improvement with Thomas Tuchel's arrival a few months ago. After struggling in the first half of the season, a club legend like Frank Lampard had to leave his job and the change of managers worked out perfectly for the Blues. Still, goalscoring has been a problem lately with Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham failing to deliver, and that's why the Blues target a world-class striker like Romelu Lukaku to fix that issue from next season onwards. Inter's goalscoring machine has Premier League experience as well, and it would hand a serious boost to the team.
The Belgian had his first experience in a top club with the London side, but he barely had opportunities to earn a first-team spot. He had much more playing minutes with a loan move to West Bromwich, which enabled him to call Everton's attention. Lukaku rose to stardom with the Toffees, having been on target 87 times in 166 appearances.
He kept on impressing with Manchester United, although the Red Devils couldn't find results as a team. The 27-year-old striker sort of revitalized his career in Italy and now one of his former clubs are believed to be thrilled for signing him again. Chelsea would be willing to splash the cash to make that dream possible.
Chelsea ready to make a huge investment to secure Lukaku's goals
Before the 2020/21 campaign, and following a year in which it was banned from making signings in the transfer market, the club owned by Roman Abramovich made the best of its wealthy budget and hogged the spotlight by acquiring Werner and many other big names. However, the German forward struggled to be on target and even failed unbelievable chances in recent games. The other options for the center forward position like Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham didn't convince Tuchel either and both would leave the club in the summer.
According to The Sun, Chelsea would be prepared to offer about $125 million to bring back Romelu Lukaku. Inter's striker is having an outstanding season while the Nerazurris are ruling the Serie A standings and heading to the championship.
The Belgian international has scored 27 goals in 40 games in the current term, taking into account local league, Coppa Italia, and UEFA Champions League matches. The Italians probably won't be thinking about selling him as he not only constantly finds the net but also makes a great attacking duo with Lautaro Martínez.
Still, the offer Chelsea are willing to make could be too lucrative to turn down. For Lukaku, it would be a great opportunity to return to the Premier League and also to have a second chance with the Blues. Moreover, their current form with Tuchel is also a good signal that the team is capable to fight for European glory as well.
Chelsea and Lukaku's story didn't have the best ending as the promising young center forward ended up shining with other teams. Many years later, already turned into a world-class star, he could be leading the Blues' front line and give the solution to their goalscoring issues.
