Romelu Lukaku, the Inter Milan striker, has arrived in London to finalize his £97.5 million (€115 million) transfer to Chelsea.

The 28-year-old is likely to sign a five-year deal with a weekly salary of £200,000.

Reports had emerged that Inter – Seria-A champions – had rejected two offers from Chelsea for Lukaku, the second of which was worth £85m (€100m) plus left-back Marcos Alonso.

Lukaku left Chelsea in 2014 after making just 15 appearances there following his arrival at Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht in 2011.

One of the most prolific strikers in Europe, Lukaku scored 87 goals in 166 games for Everton between 2014 and 2017 and found the net 42 times in 96 appearances during his two years at Manchester United before signing for Inter in 2019.

Lukaku scored 24 goals in Serie A last season, helping Inter to their first Scudetto in 11 years. The club however, put an end to Juventus’ nine-year reign as Italian top-flight champions.
