Romelu Lukaku to follow Antonio Conte to Napoli

Andy Mattioli

Romelu Lukaku is eyeing another reunion with former Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte who is in talks to become Napoli’s new boss.

The Belgian striker’s loan at Roma has come to an end and the player is expected to shortly make his return to Chelsea as Roma have not found an agreement to renew his stay.

In the meantime, with Conte set to take over Napoli’s managerial vacancy, Corriere della Sera reports that the Italian technician has already made clear in his first discussions with the Partenopei that he wishes to bring Lukaku with him.

Big Rom would come in as a replacement to Victor Osimhen and could even be part of a deal for the Nigerian attacker who is bound to leave Napoli this offseason.

Osimhen’s pricetag is of around €130 million and could be attained by including a technical counterpart like Lukaku.
