Chelsea want a purchase option included in any further loan deals of striker Romelu Lukaku to Inter.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInter1908, who report that the Blues have no intention of loaning the Belgian to the Nerazzurri again beyond the end of his current loan deal without at least a purchase option being included.
Chelsea do not want Lukaku’s situation to remain open-ended.
The 29-year-old desire to stay at Inter is clear, whilst the Nerazzurri would be happy to keep him beyond the end of the current season provided he can stay fit.
However, the Nerazzurri would have to negotiate new terms on a loan with Chelsea in order to keep the Belgian beyond the end of the current campaign, as that is when his current loan deal expires.
The Blues would value Lukaku at around €70-80 million, and they would want any extension to the striker’s loan to include a purchase option at a set fee.
In the meantime, Chelsea are also very keen on Inter wingback Denzel Dumfries, whose name could also come up in talks around Lukaku.
