Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku has joined Chelsea for a second spell on a 5-year deal from Inter Milan, for £98m ,the Premier League club announced on Thursday.
“One of the most prolific strikers in European football, Lukaku has returned to the club he supported as a young boy and where he has unfinished business, having been on our books between 2011 and 2014,” read a club statement.
The now-prolific striker joined Chelsea in 2011 but made only 15 appearances and was sold to Everton in 2014 after loan spells at West Bromwich Albion. He moved to Manchester United in 2017 before heading to Italy in 2019.
Lukaku scored 24 league goals in the 2020-21 season to help Inter clinch their first Serie A title in 11 years.
