Chelsea have been linked with a move for a top striker at the end of the season, and one of the names to have been linked with the club is former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Now 28, Lukaku has blossomed into one of the best strikers in the world, and recently helped Inter Milan win the Serie A title.

Lukaku has scored 21 goals and 10 assists in the league this season for Inter, and is being valued at £90m upwards — meaning Chelsea will have to break the club’s transfer record to sign the Belgian.

Inter were confirmed Champions over the weekend, following Atalanta’s draw with Sassuolo, and Lukaku, drove around the streets of Milan waving an Inter flag to celebrate their title win on Monday.

Lukaku also revealed that he is very happy at the San Siro and is keen to keep playing for the Scudetto winners.

“I am so happy for all the Inter fans in the world, for the team, the staff, the president and everyone,” Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a wonderful year for us, I am truly proud to play for Inter.

“I wanted to come out here and celebrate along with the people. I told my friend this was the best way to experience it, to be there with the fans.

“For me and many of my teammates, this is our first league title, so it’s a moment we wanted to share with them.”

Asked if this was the best season of his career, Lukaku added: “Last year was good too, but yes, this was the best of my career.

“It’s wonderful and I hope to continue like this. I want to thank everyone, I am truly so happy.”
