Chelsea open to Lukaku loan amid Roma interest

Andy Mattioli

Roma remain interested in the possibility of signing Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea.

In fact, after adding Sardar Azmoun to their roster, the capital club are on the look-out for one more attacker.

Recent reports claim that Roma’s dream signing before the transfer deadline is out-of-favor Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Contrary to their stance earlier in the summer, David Ornstein of The Athletic reports that Chelsea have now come to accept the option of a loan for Lukaku.

The English side failed to draw convincing offers for a permanent exit of the Belgian attacker.

According to Ornstein, Chelsea are now open to Lukaku leaving on loan provided it includes an obligation or a “meaningful” fee in case of a dry loan.

Roma are listed among the teams to have inquired about Lukaku in recent days.
