Inter are considering the possibility of a future without striker Romelu Lukaku, with the club identifying Sassuolo’s Giacomo Raspadori and Atalanta’s Duvan Zapatas as targets to bring in should the Belgian be sold to Chelsea.

This according to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report in their online edition that the Nerazzurri are still hoping not to sell the Belgian, but have begun to plan on how to use the proceeds of a sale should he depart.

Chelsea have stepped up their interest in the Belgian recently, with the English side ready to make an offer well in excess of €100 million for the striker.

The striker does not want to leave Milan and has expressed a desire to stay at Inter, but should he change his mind the Nerazzurri would not stand in his way and would sell him for a high enough offer.

It is thought that the Blues are offering to raise the Belgian’s wages to a net of €15 million per season from the €8 million he currently earns with the Nerazzurri, and the club are working hard to convince him to join.

Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri would begin to consider the Blues’ offer should the player express a wish to go and the fee go as high as €130 million, considering the amount too much to turn down.

Should Lukaku be sold for a fee in this region, the Nerazzurri would look to reinvest €70-80 million of it in replacing the Belgian in the transfer market with two Serie A players.

Young Sassuolo striker Giacomo Raspadori has been a target for Inter for much of the window and his arrival could be expedited should Lukaku leave the club, while Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata is a more experienced option who could be looked to in order to immediately replace the Belgian.
