Premier League

Inter Milan have been linked with a move for Romelu Lukaku.

In the wake of reports linking Romelu Lukaku with a move to Inter Milan, the club has been instructed to replace the out-of-favor striker with Robert Lewandowski, the 'ultimate goalscorer.'

Romelu Lukaku intends to discuss his future with Chelsea this summer, now that the club's future is safe under new owner Todd Boehly.

The Premier League club has been urged to send the Belgian out the door as soon as possible and replace him with Robert Lewandowski, the 'ultimate goalscorer.'

Chelsea's £4.25 billion buyouts were officially completed on Monday, and Lukaku is now eager to speak with the club's new top brass and manager Thomas Tuchel about his role at the club, despite reports linking him with a return to Inter Milan.

Lukaku returned to Stamford Bridge last summer on a club-record £97.5 million fee, but the 29-year-old has had a difficult first season in west London.

After a good start following his arrival, the Belgian international's influence diminished, and he concluded the season behind Kai Havertz and Timo Werner under Tuchel.

With his future as a Blues player in doubt, the Times reports that he wants to speak with Tuchel and the club's new management when the relevant appointments under Boehly are made.

Lukaku had to apologize to the club and fans after openly expressing his wish to return to Inter, and he had to apologize again later in the season after remarking on Tuchel's tactics and how they didn't suit him in an interview with Sky Sports Italia.

After the Premier League season ended last weekend, the striker returned to Belgium and will soon be on international duty for forthcoming Nations League games.

Inter have expressed interest in bringing Lukaku back to the San Siro, but given his £300,000-a-week pay and the fact that he has four years left on his five-year deal, a loan move appears to be the most likely option.

After the Polish goal machine stated his desire to leave Bayern Munich, the club has been pushed to complete the deal and replace Lukaku with Lewandowski.

Tony Cascarino joined talkSPORT to debate Lukaku's future at Chelsea, claiming that Lewandowski is the attacker Tuchel has been looking for.

"Mason Mount was the club's highest scorer in the Premier League this season—Lukaku hasn't scored enough goals," the former Blues striker remarked on talkSPORT Breakfast.

"What do you do with him? It's a tough one. " How many clubs in Europe can afford to pay his wages and a transfer price to get him out?

"It'll all come down to Tuchel." Managers don't always like you; you're not their cup of tea, and it appears that way. With Lukaku and Tuchel at Chelsea, it doesn't appear to be a good fit.

"If you give him the option of getting Lewandowski, he'll take it." Even though he's 32, Chelsea recruited Thiago Silva, and he's been a fantastic addition to the club.

"If they can get that one across the line, Chelsea have been missing goals in the center-forward position all season, and it's costing them a lot of money." They came in third place and won the FIFA Club World Cup, but they lacked an ultimate striker, and he is one of them.

"You'd take Lewandowski any day of the week; he's a goal machine, and his wages would be pennies on the dollar for Chelsea."
