Striker Romelu Lukaku could depart from Inter as early as this weekend, with the Blues hoping to wrap up a deal for him by meeting the Nerazzurri’s valuation.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the English club are prepared to submit their latest offer to the Nerazzurri today, and are also ready to offer the Belgian personal terms which would nearly double the wages which he currently earns at Inter.

The Nerazzurri have been firm up to this point and not wanting to sell the Belgian, and have rejected an initial offer from Chelsea of €105 million cash plus Marcos Alonso, but the Blues are determined and are expected to return very soon with a new offer of €130 million to test the Nerazzurri’s resolve.

Should the player agree on a move, the Nerazzurri could consider accepting the Blues’ offer, despite denials earlier in the window that they would ever consider the player to be for sale.

In the case that the player is sold, an agreement could be reached quickly, with the Blues wanting to get their man quickly and the Nerazzurri wanting adequate time to find a replacement for the 28-year-old, who has been crucial for the team the past two seasons.

To this end, a deal could be wrapped up as early as this weekend, with the Blues not waiting to submit a more aggressive offer and ongoing in their attempts to convince the player.

The Blues are offering the striker personal terms worth €12-13 million net per season which could reach €15 million with add-ons, a significant increase from the €8.5 million which he currently earns with Inter, and this could prove a decisive factor in convincing him to leave.

It remains to be seen, however, whether the player will accept a move, but should he decide on it then the clubs could move quickly to make it happen.
