Chelsea boss Potter open to Lukaku return

Chelsea boss Graham Potter is open to bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge next season.

Lukaku, who struggled to win the favour of former boss Thomas Tuchel, is said to be keen on a permanent deal at Inter beyond his year-long spell, but the loan agreement does not include an option or obligation to buy next summer.

ESPN says although the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on deadline day filled a void in attack at Chelsea, Potter is keen not to close the door on Lukaku's Chelsea career just yet.

The Blues manager is open to holding talks with the 29-year-old in a bid to revive his career, should he be interested in a return.

Lukaku remains under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2026.
