The Blues are ready to sell and might agree to a loan-plus-buyout deal.

Inter Milan are set to hold talks with Chelsea over Romelu Lukaku whom they hope to sign in the summer transfer window.

Reports indicate the Serie A heavyweights are hoping to have the Belgian remain at the club for next season. He was at Inter on a loan deal, and the Italian club wants to keep him owing to some impressive performances.

After faltering at Manchester United, Lukaku moved to Inter Milan and had convincing performances, which forced Chelsea to make a big money move to bring the 30-year-old back to Stamford Bridge.

His return to London did not go as planned, and Lukaku returned to Italy on a loan deal. In the last season, he played in 37 games and had a total of 21 goal contributions. He scored 14 goals and provided seven assists, with Inter progressing to the Champions League final, which they ultimately lost to Manchester City.

The Belgian was on the pitch for less than 2000 minutes, and his contributions are considered above average considering that he was mostly used as a substitute.

This left Simone Inzaghi impressed, and the manager wants to keep him. Lukaku's contract with Chelsea will expire in the summer of 2026, but the London club is ready to sell the former Everton striker.

Inter and Chelsea are said to have been in talks, although there is no conclusion as of now. They are expected to meet in a week's time to decide on the future of the Belgian forward.
