Talks between Chelsea and Inter over Romelu Lukaku are ongoing, with Sky Sport Italia reporting the Blues could make a ‘final offer’ by the weekend.
Lukaku has already given the all-clear to move to Stamford Bridge, where he would earn €12m-a-year plus up to €3m in bonuses.
However, the Premier League champions have not yet agreed on the player’s price tag with Inter, so talks between the two clubs are ongoing.
Sky Sports UK report Inter and Chelsea hold positive talks over a deal for the striker in the last few hours.

Inter rejected Chelsea’s €100m bid, which included the ownership of Marcos Alonso.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea are preparing a new bid and Inter could receive the ‘final offer’ from London by the weekend.
However, it is still unclear how much Inter want to sell the 28-year-old.
Sportitalia claim Inter won’t accept less than €130m for Lukaku, while Sky Sports UK suggest a lower fee, perhaps around €120m would be enough for the Blues to sign their former striker.
