The most expensive striker in Premier League history is constantly on the bench in important Chelsea matches.

Both Inter and Tottenham are eyeing the striker born in 1993. However, Lukaku is said to just want to return to playing in the Italian league, where he reached the peak of his form.

This is not the first time the media has reported that Lukaku wants to return to Serie A. At the end of 2021, the 113 million euro contract of “The Blues” caused a storm with the statement: “I am not happy with the situation. current form at Chelsea”.

Under pressure from the public, Lukaku had to apologize and promise to devote himself to the Stamford Bridge team. However, “Big Rom” is constantly running low in the Premier League. This player has not scored a goal in 2022 for Chelsea.

Coach Thomas Tuchel also no longer has patience for the Belgian student. He punished Lukaku by pushing the player to the bench to make room for Kai Havertz. The young German star is playing impressively and shows that he is the right person for Chelsea’s current playing style.

This season, Lukaku has appeared 28 times in all competitions, scoring 9 goals. The biggest mark of this player is the goal in the semi-finals and final of the FIFA Club World Cup. However, that is not enough to convince the fans.
