Transfer: Lukaku set for Mourinho reunion as Roma agree loan deal

Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku is set for a reunion with Jose Mourinho with Roma.

The Serie A side have agreed terms for a season-long loan deal for Lukaku.

The loan fee is believed to be in the region of £8m.

Lukaku spent last season on loan at Inter Milan after he fell out of favour at Chelsea following a controversial interview in which he said he was not happy under former head coach Thomas Tuchel.

The striker was keen on a return to Italy and was happy to go to Rome because of his desire to work with manager Jose Mourinho again.

Juventus held talks with Chelsea over the signing of Lukaku earlier this summer, while Inter were also keen on bringing the Belgium international back to Italy.

Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal were also interested in signing the 30-year-old, who signed for Chelsea from Inter for £97.5m in August 2021.
