ROMELU LUKAKU is reportedly hoping to force a move to Inter Milan this summer.
The 29-year-old forward announced in an interview last year that he would like to return to the club in his prime and said he was unhappy at Chelsea.
And Lukaku could fulfill his wish with an imminent loan move, although any transfer move depends on Inter’s finances.
According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are demanding a £20million loan fee to let the striker go.
They would also reportedly include an option to make the move permanent, which would mean covering the remainder of the £97.5m fee they paid to sign.
Lukaku also earns £325,000 a week which may be more than Inter can afford although the striker is believed to be willing to take a pay cut.
But when asked about his future ahead of Belgium’s defeat by the Netherlands, Lukaku replied: “I can’t talk about that.”
Inter will again face spending restrictions this summer due to Financial Fair Play regulations, with the club appearing to have Paulo Dybala in their sights as their number one target.
The Argentine is available for free after announcing his departure from Juventus and would demand heavy wages.
That means Inter may need to sell before moving to Lukaku – with striker Lautaro Martinez a possible departure.

Martinez could even join Chelsea this summer, with Inter ready to sell if they receive a £51million offer.
Tottenham are also said to be interested in the forward but Martinez revealed he has not been contacted about a transfer and is keen to stay at the San Siro.
