Inter’s Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku will undergo new medical tests next week to determine if he can feature for the Nerazzurri in the Serie A before the FIFA World Cup break.

This according to a report in today’s print edition of Turin based Tuttosport, as reported via FCInterNews, claiming that the Belgian international must follow a schedule for physiotherapy for his left thigh injury before undergoing further exams next week.

The Chelsea owned striker still hopes to be able to feature for Inter in the Serie A before the FIFA World Cup break, targeting the Nerazzurri’s clash away against Atalanta to make his return, the report continues.

Romelu Lukaku returned to action in Inter’s Champions League 4-0 thrashing of Viktoria Plzen, scoring the last goal in a win that secured the Nerazzurri’s spot in the Round of last 16.

However, a few days later on October 29th against Sampdoria in Serie A, he picked up another injury that forced him to miss the final UEFA Champions League group stage match against German side Bayern Munich this last Tuesday.

This latest injury also ruled him out of tomorrow’s Serie A clash against Juventus as so far this season Lukaku has only made five appearances across all competitions so far this season scoring twice.

Before re-joining Inter, the Belgian international signed for Chelsea for a reported fee of €115 million in 2021, becoming the seventh-most expensive player of all-time.

Lukaku re-joined the Nerazzurri from Chelsea in June 2022 on loan for a reported fee of €8 million.
