Chelsea To Reward Tuchel With £100M Striker Signing

Chelsea will now launch a move to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, according to the Daily Mail.

The Thomas Tuchel-led Blues were mightily impressive throughout their Champions League campaign, but there can be no denying a center-forward is a necessity this summer.

Jorginho finished as the team’s top scorer in the Premier League with seven goals, all penalties.

That is shocking – and makes you wonder but Tuchel certainly won’t be asking questions like that.

As he begins to plan for next season, he will certainly acknowledge it as a weakness.

The Daily Mail claim it’s one that Chelsea are set to address by pursuing Lukaku, who left the club in 2014 and has gone on to become one of the world’s best strikers.

And according to the same report, Inter Milan are ready to demand as much as £100M in exchange for the Belgian, a figure which Chelsea will be keen to negotiate down.

Their interest, though, is legitimate, and if the information in the report is correct, we’d expect to see Chelsea lodge a concrete proposal sooner rather than later.
