While an offer of €90m plus Marcos Alonso was rejected by Inter on the weekend, the Nerazzurri are open to selling the Belgium international.
TMW says Inter are prepared to sell Lukaku for a cash price of €120m. Those close to negotiations state Inter could be talked down to €110m. The club's owners, Suning, are having financial problems and need to sell players this summer to ease debt problems.
The fee demanded by the Nerazzurri falls within Chelsea's transfer budget, with owner Roman Abramovich prepared to pay big money for a centre-forward this summer.
Lukaku is currently on a €7m salary and Chelsea are intimating a willingness to go as high as €15m-a-year to bring him back to Stamford Bridge. Abramovich's son arrived in Milan last week just as Lukaku was returning from his extended summer break.
