Chelsea ask for Skriniar to be included in Lukaku deal with Inter Milan

Chelsea have expressed interest in Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea have enquired about including Skriniar in any deal which will see Romelu Lukaku go the other way.

It is now looking increasingly likely that it will be one and done for Lukaku, with the £97.5m desperate to return to the San Siro after just 12 months back at Chelsea.

Inter are hoping to take Lukaku back on loan, but could bring a permanent fee dramatically down by including players as a makeweight.

Skriniar is valued at £70m by Nerazzurri chiefs and they’ve already rejected a bid from PSG.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is desperate for defensive reinforcements after the departures of Rudiger and Christensen and it could be a move which suits both parties.
