Roma are steadily edging closer to an agreement for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

The club held another round of talks with Chelsea in London offices earlier this morning.

The two parties are expected to reach an agreement for Lukaku’s loan to the Italian capital within the coming hours.

As reported by The Telegraph journalist Matt Law, Roma and Chelsea are close to agreeing on the final loan fee which will be of around £8-9 million.

Roma are also working with Lukaku’s agent to lower the player’s salary which will covered in full by the Italian club. Lukaku will likely earn around £7 million instead of his usual £10-11 million.

There is consistent optimism on both sides to get the deal done as soon as possible.
