Chelsea prepares Improve Lukaku Bid
Chelsea are preparing a new bid for Inter striker Romelu Lukaku of up to €130 million (£111m/$154m) .
Lukaku is being tipped to return to Stamford Bridge this summer as Thomas Tuchel seeks to bolster his attacking options at Chelsea ahead of his first full season in charge.
It was reported that the Blues have already seen an opening offer of €100m (£85m/$119m) for the Belgian rejected , which included Spanish full-back, Marcos Alonso, as a potential makeweight.
Chelsea are now willing to offer between €120m and €130m to land Lukaku, with Inter likely to accept a fee within that region as they continue to negotiate their way through a financial crisis.
Whether or not the 28-year-old signs for the Blues could now come down to final negotiations on the structure of the deal, but plans are already being made for his arrival in west London.
It has been learned that Chelsea are looking at viable exit strategies for Tammy Abraham as they close in on Lukaku, with Aston Villa eager to bring in the England international on loan.
However, Chelsea would prefer that Abraham departs on a permanent basis, and they would like to earn around £40m ($56m) from his sale.
