He has been deemed surplus to requirements by Maurizio Sarri and is now on loan at Fenerbahce, after joining in January.

Antonio Conte is keen on a move to take Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.

Last summer, the Blues parted ways with the former Juventus manager and replaced him with Maurizio Sarri.

The 28-year-old made just two Premier League appearances for the club in the first half of the season before being shipped to Turkey to finish the season.

Lukaku, 26, has only managed 15 goals for the Red Devils this season, a far cry from his debut campaign in 2017/18 when he notched up 27 goals and was touted to be the successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Croatian global had a superb 2018 World Cup and has been consistently good for Inter, scoring 40 goals in 161 appearances in all competitions since he arrived in 2015.

Judge orders file in Jussie Smollett criminal case be unsealed
Chicago officials and the city's Police Department fumed after a lone prosecutor made a decision to drop the case. The files were originally sealed under an IL law that allows the documents of dismissed cases to remain sealed.

But the winger has 12 months left on his loan deal at Fenerbahce, while his contract with Chelsea expires in the summer of 2021.

Premier League victor and former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is targetting Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku once he seals his Serie A return by taking over at Inter Milan.

Conte was sacked from Chelsea after a turbulent season, which saw the Italian fall out with a number of players and executives at the club.

According to The Times, those plans include a move for Belgian global Lukaku who has fallen out-of-favour at Old Trafford this season.
