After Chelsea were not busy during the January transfer window and could not sign their target players, the Blues are also prepared to cut their losses on Romelu Lukaku at the end of the campaign, 90min reports.
The Belgium international rejoined the Blues from Inter Milan last summer for a club-record £97m fee. He made a bright start with three goals from as many games.
However, he has since struggled for consistency. Lukaku has netted only nine more goals from his next 34 appearances. He is now a regular on the substitutes’ bench.
According to 90min, the Blues are willing to offload Lukaku at the end of the ongoing campaign. They are prepared to accept a reasonable loss in the progress of doing so.
Inter Milan could look at the prospect of re-signing Lukaku this summer, but it is unclear whether they can afford a permanent deal, having eased their financial concerns lately.
Paris Saint-Germain are another club that could pursue the Belgian. Les Parisiens are braced for the departure of Kylian Mbappe when his contract expires over the summer.
