Romelu Lukaku hopes to help Chelsea win 'more titles' after Inter Milan accepted the Blues' bid of £97.5m for the Belgian striker.

Lukaku, who has previously plied his trade at Chelsea in an unsuccessful spell, returns to Stamford Bridge as one of the best strikers in the world, having helped Inter to Serie A title last season.

Lukaku's arrival will further bolster Chelsea's attacking department, with the defending Champions League winners already boasting the presence of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount and co.

Lukaku says he is happy and blessed to be back at Chelsea, and added he is coming back to the club with 'a lot of experience'. The 28-year-old also hopes to help Thomas Tuchel's side to more trophies.

"I'm happy and blessed to be back at this wonderful club," Lukaku told Chelsea's official website. "It's been a long journey for me: I came here as a kid who had a lot to learn, now I’m coming back with a lot of experience and more mature.

"The relationship I have with this club means so much to me, as you know. I have supported Chelsea as a kid and now to be back and try to help them win more titles is an amazing feeling.

"The way the club is going fits my ambitions perfectly at 28 and just coming off winning Serie A. I think this opportunity comes at the right time and hopefully we can have a lot of success together.

"Since I left Chelsea, it’s been a long journey with a lot of ups and downs, but these experiences made me strong and the challenge is to try to help the team win some more trophies. I can’t wait to get started and to help the club achieve more success."
