Thomas Tuchel wants Chelsea to sign 30-goal striker

Romelu Lukaku news

Romelu Lukaku set for Chelsea return?

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has urged the club's hierarchy to land the signature of Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues have enjoyed an impressive second half to the season, but they have been average when it comes to scoring goals.

The club have created numerous chances, but their output has been poor with Timo Werner misfiring upfront for them.

Tuchel wants a new marksman this summer, and Sunday World claims that he is keen on landing the signature of Lukaku.

The German is reportedly a huge admirer of the Belgian, who was previously with Chelsea between 2011 and 2014.

Lukaku has developed into a world-class striker over the years, and he netted 30 goals for Inter Milan in the recent campaign.

His efforts helped the Nerazzurri win the Serie A title after 11 years, but he could reportedly leave the club this summer.

The Nerazzurri parted ways with manager Antonio Conte after a disagreement over the transfer strategy going forward.

Lukaku joined the club due to Conte's presence. The Blues are aiming to re-sign him with a bid of around £60 million.
