Inter Milan striker and Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku has reportedly ruled out a sensational return to the Premier League, as the Nerazzuri prepare to make his loan move permanent.

Lukaku made a stunning return to Inter Milan this past summer after a disappointing season at Chelsea, where he struggled to replicate the form witnessed at Inter.

Lukaku had one of the best individual seasons in his career when he won the Italian Serie A with Inter Milan. He also came close to clinching his first golden boot in the league.

In August last year, Chelsea broke their transfer record by signing the Belgian for £97.5 million, 10 years after he first joined the London team, according to Sky Sports.

Lukaku wants Inter loan extended

According to Football Italia, Lukaku isn't keen on returning to Chelsea. For that reason, Simone Inzaghi's side are ready to extend his loan until 2024 before making his move permanent.

The 29-year-old rejoined Inter last season following an underwhelming spell at Chelsea, where he scored just eight Premier League goals in 26 matches last season, according to Sky Sports.

Moreover, Inter does not have an option or obligation to buy since it was a dry loan deal. According to reports, the Serie A giants and the Blues have a gentlemen’s agreement to extend the Belgian's deal until 2024.

Chelsea plan to offer Lukaku to Tottenham

Sports Brief earlier reported on Chelsea planning on moving Lukaku to Tottenham Hotspur plus cash for their talisman Harry Kane.

The Blues will want Kane to move the other way, with new boss Graham Potter a big fan of the Three Lions captain.

Kane is under contract for two more years and it will certainly take a lot of convincing for Spurs to trade him to a direct rival .
