According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are ready to re-sign Romelu Lukaku this summer as Thomas Tuchel plots a Premier League title challenge.

The Blues are also interested in signing Harry Kane and Erling Haaland but see Lukaku as a realistic target.

While Chelsea have built a solid defence under Tuchel, the Blues have struggled to score goals. Chelsea have scored more than two goals in a game just once in 30 matches under the German.

Chelsea signed Lukaku as an 18 year old in 2011 but sold the striker to Everton in 2014 for £28million.

Lukaku is now viewed as one of Europe’s premier centre forwards and, at 28, is entering his prime. Inter are understood to value Lukaku at £100m but Chelsea will be keen to negotiate a lower price given Inter’s need to sell.
