Lukaku has told the Nerazzurri that he wants to return to the Blues despite having previously wanted to stay at the San Siro.

The Italian club are prepared to sell but want the London giants to match their €130 million asking price before sanctioning the sale.

Chelsea are allegedly aiming to sign the forward in the next 48 hours, but his arrival could well trigger the exit of a few players from the club as well.

Tammy Abraham is tipped to leave, but according to the Italian website Calciomercato.com, Ziyech is also expected to be allowed to depart as Chelsea look to trim their roster and the wage bill.

The Moroccan star was a peripheral figure at Stamford Bridge in his first season and was an unused substitute in the UEFA Champions League final.

The Rossoneri have been keeping track of the forward’s situation all summer and have always believed that a summer deal could be done towards the end of the market.
