Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku reportedly wants to leave the club this summer. The 28-year-old striker rejoined the Blues last summer in a £97 million move from Inter Milan, making him the most expensive signing in the club's history.

Football Insider reports that the Belgian is unhappy at the club having been dropped by Thomas Tuchel in recent months. Lukaku has encountered a troublesome time at Chelsea both on and off the field ever since his huge transfer. Having started brightly under Tuchel, his form fell off subsequently and in December the Belgian striker criticized the German manager's system in a controversial Sky Italia interview.

He also hinted at his desire to return to Inter Milan whilst apologizing to their fans, just four months after having departed in unceremonious circumstances. Tuchel has reportedly had issues with the way in which the forward has conducted himself and his fitness levels have also reportedly not been up to the former PSG manager's expectations.

Lukaku was subsequently given a fine and a one- game ban for his actions, for which he later apologised. The former Manchester United striker's deal with Tuchel's side runs until 2026 but the Belgian seemingly wants to cut his stay short.
