Reports: Chelsea are willing to sell Lukaku in the summer

According to a source, Chelsea have been receptive to the prospect of letting striker Romelu Lukaku leave the club this summer.

The Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge in August in a club-record transfer for roughly £97.5 million from Serie A side Inter Milan.

However, following a disappointing start to his return to West London, where the 28-year-old has scored only five goals in 20 Premier League games, 90min are stating that the Champions League holders are considering selling Lukaku at the conclusion of the season.

After appearing sparingly in Thomas Tuchel's plans in recent months, the report says that the German manager is prepared to sell the striker in the forthcoming transfer window in order to limit the club's losses.

Inter Milan, as well as Paris Saint-Germain, are said to be interested in signing Lukaku, despite the Italian club still owing a large sum from last summer's transfer to Chelsea.

The article details how this may factor into any discussions between the two teams, and if Lukaku were to return to the San Siro, it would be to a club where he scored 64 goals in 95 games in all competitions.

Meanwhile, the Belgian striker might return to play for Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, when his team takes on Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals, although he is doubtful owing to a tendon injury.
