He formed a deadly attacking trio with Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez at the club.

Following his departure, the Inter fans were furious and demanded that the President of Inter Milan Mr. Steven Zhang stepped down from his position. Inter have lost both their manager Antonio Conte and Romelu Lukaku, their top goalscorer from the past two seasons in the summer window.

Belgium: The striker is coming to Chelsea after a very successful stint at the Euro with Belgium. Lukaku scored 4 goals in the 5 games that Belgium played at the Euro.

Timo Werner has his say on Lukaku:

Werner in an interview with Sky Sports said that ” Lukaku is probably one of the three best strikers in the world at the moment.”

” I don’t think we need to say too much about Lukaku. He is a player who would benefit any team that he plays for” the German striker said.

Chelsea would probably have a front three of Havertz-Werner and Lukaku when the new season starts on Saturday.

It would be interesting to see how well Lukaku and Havertz link up in the attack. Thomas Tuchel could certainly opt to use the 4-4-2 or the 4-3-3 formation depending on what suits the team.

Nevertheless, it would be very exciting for Chelsea fans to see the striker back at the Club. The fans would certainly be expecting a lot of goals from their new Summer Signing
