‘He sees the league as almost perfect for him and is keen on the transfer’ – £97.5million striker makes transfer decision

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is very open to turning his loan move to Inter Milan into a permanent transfer, according to Dean Jones.

Lukaku joined Inter Milan on loan after struggling to make an impact following a £97.5million transfer from Inter Milan in the summer of 2021.

Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “He really enjoys his life in Italy. He sees the league as almost perfect for him, particularly at this stage of his career.

“If this can work out in a way that means he does end up staying in Serie A, then he would probably be very open to it.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly regrets the decision to send Lukaku out on loan to Inter Milan last summer, according to The Athletic.

The report also adds that former Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich would not have sanctioned such a humiliating admission of defeat by loaning out the club record signing on terms so friendly to Inter Milan.

After regretting the Lukaku decision, Boehly drew a harder line with Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech later in the window, insisting they could only leave Stamford Bridge on permanent deals for transfer fees that made business sense.

Lukaku has struggled with injuries during his loan spell at Inter Milan and has played just 256 minutes of football for the Italian side.
