According to the Athletic, Chelsea have rejected a bid from Italian club Inter Milan for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

The report states: “Chelsea have rejected Inter Milan’s latest bid for Romelu Lukaku and are seeking a fee in the region of €45million (£38.5m, $49.4m).

“Juventus and Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal are also interested in Lukaku, should Inter be unable reach Chelsea’s desired fee.

“Al Hilal — one of the four Saudi Pro League sides taken over by the country’s Public Investment Fund recently — have been pursuing a deal for Lukaku for weeks but the Belgium international is still holding out for a return to Inter.

“Inter, though, are not close to reaching Chelsea’s target of €45m, which is still some way off the £97.5m the Italians received for Lukaku when they sold him to the west London club in the summer of 2021.”
