Romelu Lukaku has completed the main part of his Chelsea medical in Milan in his bid to rejoin Chelsea from Inter Milan. 

Omasports gathered that the deal is worth €115m (£97.5m) 

Lukaku’s representatives are planning for the player to fly to London this week to complete a move which will bring to about £285m the transfer fees – excluding for loans – spent on the Belgium international over his career.

Thomas Tuchel has not hidden his intentions to get a striker despite winning the champions league last season.

Timo Werner who joined in from RB Leipzig recorded a paltry 12 goals from 52 appearances Tammy Abraham recorded 12 goals as well in 32 appearances. In search of an elite presence in the frontline, Thomas Tuchel made a striker his priority and Chelsea moved for Lukaku after concluding that targets such as Erling Haaland and Harry Kane were out of reach. 

Lukaku is well acquainted with the Premier League having joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 and also played for West Brom, Everton and Manchester United.
