Chelsea are willing to pay Inter Milan £93.25m (€110m) to re-sign striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues are prepared to pay a straight €110m with no other players involved in a potential deal, while other ways of structuring a deal continue to be discussed.

Inter value Lukaku at £101.7m (€120m) so a compromise with Chelsea may be possible at £97.5m (€115m).

Chelsea have made two offers for the Belgium international, the second of which was worth £85m (€100m) plus left-back Marcos Alonso.
