Italians want to get deal done with Chelsea over £300k-a-week powerhouse.
Roma want to sign Romelu Lukaku permanently when his season-long loan from Chelsea ends next summer.
Lukaku was at Inter Milan on loan last season and almost helped the Italians win the Champions League – but they were unable to get past the dominant Man City.
His loan deal at the Italians ended at the beginning of the summer – and there has been alot of speculation about his future – with many clubs linked with a possible deal after CHELSEA made the decision to let him leave.
But despite the fact Chelsea dont have a proven striker – the decision was made to allow Lukaku leave for Roma for the next 12 months, and he has been impressing at the Seria A side.
Lukaku has made a big impact at Roma, scoring nine times in 12 games, including a late winner against Lecce on Sunday, and they now want to make a move permanent.
Roma are delighted with the way the Belgium forward has settled at the club and he is very happy in Rome.
Lukaku is a man that should never have come back to the Premier League, it was the wrong decision to make for him and it kind of ruined his career. So moving back to Italian football was the right decision to make.
He has stayed fit and healthy so far this season and is banging in the goals – so the fact of the matter is that Chelsea will want to get his massive £300,000-a-week wages off the books as soon as possible.
It would be a massive shock for CHELSEA to bring back Lukaku is he continues to bang in the goals, he simply does not want to be in the Premier League that is for sure.
