Inter could waver on Chelsea’s offer for striker Romelu Lukaku should the Blues put forward a high enough cash amount and the player decide that he wants to join the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper la Repubblica, who report that the Belgian is beginning to consider the English club’s offer, while the Nerazzurri have a plan to replace him should an offer of at least €150 million arrive.

The Blues have been stepping up their pursuit of Lukaku as they look to make a top-level striker available to manager Thomas Tuchel next season, with the English side turning their attention fully to the Belgian after looking to have missed out on first-choice target Erling Haaland.

The English club look to be willing to make a substantial financial commitment in order to bring the 28-year-old back to Stamford Bridge, where he was under contract for several seasons but never made a significant impact.

The Nerazzurri have resisted the Blues’ advances so far, making clear that the Belgian is not for sale to any club, while the player is thought to be happy in Milan, showing no indication that he would be willing to accept an offer from his former club in the Premier League.

However, the English side are working to convince the Belgian on a deal, offering a net €15 million per season in wages, and he is thought to be giving their offer serious thought.

The Nerazzurri will not sell Lukaku if he is not interested in leaving, but if he does want to accept the Blues’ offer, the Blues will not stand in his way should the right offer arrive.

If Lukaku is sold, the Nerazzurri have identified two targets in Serie A to replace his contributions, namely Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata and Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic, and they will move immediately for one of the pair in the event that Lukaku departs.
