Inter’s offers for Romelu Lukaku will continue to fall below Chelsea’s valuation.
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has told GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is looking to make a final exit from Stamford Bridge. However, Inter Milan’s offer of €35m will not be enough.
Lukaku is getting interest from Juventus and Saudi Club, Al Hilal. Meanwhile, both clubs haven’t submitted a bid for the Belgian forward.
The Blues outfit have valued their centre-forward option at £40m and are standing firm in their stance amid heavy interest from Inter in particular.
On Romelu Lukaku, Sheth said that he believes Inter’s offers will continue to fall below Chelsea’s valuation.
While talking to GIVEMESPORT on Monday, he said: “Now, the latest information we’ve got at Sky Sports News is that they think that Inter Milan are trying to put a deal together that’s worth around €35m. I don’t think that’s going to be enough for Chelsea to sell Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan and in the background, you’ve got interest from Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and also Juventus have held initial talks with Romelu Lukaku.
“That could just be a moot point because of the desire of the player to go to one particular club that might work against Chelsea, because if he only wants to go to Inter Milan and nowhere else, sometimes that can bring the valuation of a player down.”
Chelsea have no choice but to raise their asking price as they attempt to recoup as much of their £97.5m spend when they initially re-signed him in 2021.
