Chelsea have seen an £85 million offer for Inter striker Romelu Lukaku rejected, Goal can confirm.
The Blues included Marcos Alonso in the proposal, but the Nerazzurri will only consider bids in excess of €120m for the 28-year-old.
Lukaku is settled at Inter, but the Italian giants need to sell a number of first-team stars to balance the books after the coronavirus crisis.
Chelsea are determined to re-sign Lukaku and an offer of between €110m and €120m could convince Inter to sell.
An offer of that size is likely to be considered carefully by Inter chairman Steven Zhang.
