Belgium star Romelu Lukaku, who is on loan at Inter Milan, has been linked with a surprise move in the Premier League.

Lukaku has not had the best of returns to Inter, having registered just one goal in Serie A seven matches this campaign.

Reports in Italy claim Lukaku could be back in the Premier League next season, but not with Chelsea as London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are said to be keen.

Inter have reportedly decided against signing Lukaku on a permanent deal and he is set to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the campaign.

According to CalcioMercato, a move to Tottenham could be on the cards next term but only if Antonio Conte stays behind the current season.

Lukaku, however, did reveal recently that he would like to stay at the San Siro.

"I hope to stay at Inter also in the future. I want to continue here as I love this club, we will speak to Chelsea in order to find a solution," Lukaku told Sky Italia earlier this month.

The Belgium international has revealed he had a long chat with Chelsea owner Todd Boehly about his situation with Tuchel.

"A few days after the Nations League match against the Netherlands, I spoke to the new owner of Chelsea,” Lukaku said.

“It was a great chat in which I told him the whole truth, my version of what had happened and my relationship with Tuchel at that moment there.

“Then I decided to return to Inter, I had the opportunity and he opened the door for me. I started talking to the club and from that moment things went really fast. We talked for two weeks intensely then I left all the last details to my lawyer.”
