Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi still believes that a return of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea this summer is possible, even if there are reasons to think that it remains unlikely.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the coach is still hopeful of being able to work with the Belgian striker, a possibility which he would very much welcome.

Inzaghi will have expected that he would have Lukaku at his disposal when building his Inter team when he was appointed by the club at the start of last summer.

Even throughout the summer transfer window, there was little indication that the Belgian could depart, but then the sudden and swift move by Chelsea to present Inter with a massive offer which they and the player felt couldn’t be refused led to his departure.

This left the Nerazzurri scrambling to make sure their coach had forwards of the right quality at his disposal, first signing Edin Dzeko from Roma and then reuniting the former Lazio coach with Joaquin Correa after their pursuit of Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram stalled.

Inzaghi has managed to work well with the players he’s had at his disposal, but he remains a great admirer of Lukaku, a player he had really been looking forward to working with before the shock sale.

Now that circumstances have meant that an improbable loan return for the 29-year-old after just one season in the Premier League isn’t outside the realm of possibility, the coach is keen, and will keep believing that it can happen.
