Reports indicate Lukaku's move to west London would have been completed days back, but Inter delayed the transfer as they wanted to secure a replacement first before allowing him to depart.

However, having reportedly agreed personal terms with Roma for Edin Dzeko, it is now a matter of time before Lukaku seals a move away.

It is understood Chelsea were hoping to announce Lukaku in time for their Super Cup meeting with Villarreal set for Wednesday, August 11, but will now have to wait a little longer.

This will be Lukaku's second stint at Stamford Bridge, having had a frustrating one between 2011 and 2014.

At the time, he was afforded just 15 appearances before he switched to Everton and later Man United.

The 28-year-old signed for Inter in 2019, helping the Italian club end Juve's dominance as they lifted the Serie A title.
