Chelsea reportedly view former striker Romelu Lukaku as their most realistic target for the summer given Inter Milan's financial situation.

Chelsea are reportedly pressing ahead with plans to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan this summer.

With Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud both facing uncertain futures in the English capital, Thomas Tuchel supposedly wants to prioritise a move for a new centre-forward ahead of the new season.

Harry Kane and Erling Braut Haaland are both being strongly linked with moves to Stamford Bridge, but the former's affiliation with Tottenham Hotspur and latter's promise to honour his Borussia Dortmund contract could force Chelsea to look elsewhere.

Inter Milan are in financial disarray despite wrestling the Serie A crown off of Juventus' hands, and the Daily Mail therefore claims that Lukaku is seen as a realistic target to bolster Tuchel's attack.

The report claims that Inter still value Lukaku as a £100m player, but Chelsea are confident of driving the price down given the Nerazzurri's desperate need to raise funds.

The Belgium international scored 24 goals and assisted 10 more in 36 Serie A appearances last term, but he only made 15 appearances in his first spell for Chelsea before signing for Everton in 2014.
