Chelsea are preparing a new bid for Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku after the Serie A outfit turned down their previous offer of €100m plus Marcos Alonso.

Lukaku, who helped Inter to Serie A title last season, has emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea as the west Londoners aim to sign a new striker ahead of the new season.

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland was also tipped as a potential transfer target for Chelsea, but with the Bundesliga outfit not keen to cash on the Norwegian this summer, a deal looks unlikely.

Although Inter have rejected Chelsea's opening bid for Lukaku, the Belgian could still be on the move this summer, with Goal reporting the Premier League side are preparing new offer of up to €130m. The English outlet add Inter are likely to accept an offer in the region of €120m and €130m for the Belgian international.

Lukaku has previously plied his trade for Chelsea from 2011 to 2013, and a should deal be sealed, it will be his return to Stamford Bridge. The 28-year-old, who failed to impress in his stint at Chelsea, has also featured for Everton and Manchester United before his move to Inter in 2019.
