Chelsea are looking for a new forward with Romelu Lukaku set to re-join Inter Milan on loan
Thomas Tuchel’s side are hoping to sign a new forward this summer, with Romelu Lukaku set to re-join Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal after a frustrating season at Stamford Bridge.
Lukaku failed to live up to his £98million price tag and was often left out of Tuchel’s side in the second-half of the season.
Chelsea have also been linked with Manchester City and England star Raheem Sterling, as well as Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.
