Inter Milan superstar Romelu Lukaku is tipped for a £110 million (R2.1 billion) return to the Premier League, with the player reportedly believing he has "unfinished business" there.
According to Italian football transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea will launch a new bid for the 28-year-old Belgian forward after seeing a first offer rejected.
The Blues reportedly offered the Serie A club £85 million and left-back Marcos Alonso as part of a player-plus-cash deal earlier this week, but had that bid turned down.
According to Di Marzio, however, the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League winners could soon offer £110 million up front, with manager Thomas Tuchel reportedly desperate to sign a world-class forward in this transfer window.

Chelsea were believed to be chasing Erling Haaland's signature earlier in this transfer window, but appear set to miss out on the 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker.
The Sun has reported that Belgium's all-time record goalscorer is open to returning to west London as he feels he still has unfinished business at the club.
Lukaku was on the Blues' books from 2011 to 2014 after joining the EPL giants as a teenager from Anderlecht. However, he battled to find consistency at the club before completing a switch to Everton, where he spent three seasons prior to his two-season spell at Manchester United.
Since joining Inter in Italy, Lukaku has arguably been in the best form of his career, having struck 64 goals and assisted a further 16 strikes in 95 matches across all competitions for the Nerazzurri.
