French club Paris Saint-Germain are resigned to the fact that Kylian Mbappe will be leaving Parc des Princes once his contract expires in June and have identified a Chelsea player as a perfect replacement.

According to The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain want to replace Mbappe with Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is allegedly a huge fan of Lukaku and is considering him as a replacement for Mbappe.

Lukaku joined Chelsea last summer from Italian side Inter Milan for a club record £97.5million but has hit the headlines for the wrong reason over recent weeks following an interview he did with Sky Italia.

The striker revealed he was unhappy at Chelsea under boss Thomas Tuchel and regrets leaving Inter Milan but has since apologised and also being fined for his comments.

The report also claims Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will let Lukaku leave if he club recoups most of the money the Blues forked out to sign him last summer.

PSG are reportedly ready to pay £75.5million for Lukaku, who has only scored five goals in 13 Premier League appearances since joining Chelsea.

PSG have also been linked with a move for Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, but Lukaku is viewed as a more logical investment due to his age.
