Chelsea could ask Inter to include Lautaro Martinez, Alessandro Bastoni or Milan Skriniar as part of any loan deal for Romelu Lukaku.

Inter want to re-sign Lukaku on loan this summer and the £97.5million club-record signing is pushing to leave Chelsea following a miserable first season back at Stamford Bridge.

Inter are unable to cover the entirety of his more than £200,000-a-week wages or fund a permanent transfer but Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal.

Chelsea are plotting a rebuild of their defence this summer following the departures of Antonio Rudiger to Real Madrid and Andreas Christensen to Barcelona.

Centre-backs Bastoni Skriniar played key roles in the Inter team that won the Serie A title under Antonio Conte in the 2020-21 season and lifted the Coppa Italia trophy this season.

Argentina striker Martinez has scored 33 goals for club and country this season. He was on target for Argentina as they beat Italy 3-0 at Wembley last week and is set to be a key player in their bid to win the World Cup in Qatar this winter.

Tottenham are pressing ahead with a move for Bastoni, who is valued in the region of £50million.

He is also attracting interest from Manchester United as they prepare for a summer overhaul of their squad under new manager Erik ten Hag.
