Following his success with Chelsea in the Champions League, Thomas Tuchel is keen on strengthening the Chelsea squad this summer and the Chelsea board are happy to back the German tactician in the transfer market.
According a report by Eurosport, as cited by the Daily Star, Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia has held talks with the agent of Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea boss Tuchel is a big admirer of the Inter Milan striker and would love to sign the Belgian striker in order to strengthen his attack next season.
Despite the Belgian insisting he would remain at Inter Milan next season, Chelsea are hoping to convince him to return to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are also interested in signing Harry Kane and Erling Haaland but see Lukaku as the most realistic transfer.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is said to be a big fan of the former Chelsea striker and would like to see him return to Stamford Bridge.
