Romelu Lukaku has reached an agreement with Inter Milan over a loan return, according to reports from Italy.
The striker has had a torrid time in west London since returning to Chelsea netting just eight league goals in his first season back.
The Blues forked out a staggering £98 million to sign the Belgian international from the Nerazzurri only last summer.

La Gazzetta dello Sport is now reporting that Inter are working on an audacious move to bring him back to the San Siro.
An agreement has already been found with the player and now they need to convince Chelsea of a formula over a loan deal.
The forward has been pushing for the move back to Inter and has already agreed to take a hit on his massive wages at Chelsea.
Simone Inzaghi’s side reportedly have until June 15 to strike a deal with the west London club.

Should he return to the Italian club, he will earn an annual salary of €7.5 million which is less than his previous Inter wage and significantly lower than his Chelsea salary.
Lukaku’s return could throw either Paulo Dybala’s move or Laurto Martinez’s Inter future into some doubt.
According to Di Marzio, Inter Milan agreed that they need to finish the transfer window having made a profit of around €60 million.
