Romelu Lukaku: Chelsea forward to train on Tuesday ahead of Arsenal clash | Football News

Romelu Lukaku is expected to be be involved for Chelsea against Arsenal on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Lukaku will train with his Chelsea team-mates for the first time on Tuesday after a quarantine period following his club-record £97.5m move from Inter Milan.

He returned to Chelsea this week, 10 years after he first signed for the club as a teenager from Anderlecht.

The striker struggled to make an impression during his first spell – failing to score in 15 appearances – and moved to Everton in 2014 before joining Inter, via Manchester United.

But after two outstanding years at Inter, scoring 24 goals in Serie A last season to help them to their first Italian title in 11 years, Lukaku said returning to Chelsea was the “chance of a lifetime”.

He had previously said he would remain at San Siro for the 2021/22 campaign but changed his mind and asked Inter to arrange to sell him to Chelsea after it became clear the club wanted to make his return a reality.

Lukaku’s arrival has opened the door for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham to join Jose Mourinho’s Roma.

He completed a medical on Sunday ahead of a £34m move.

Talks progressed positively after Roma general manager Tiago Pinto met the striker in London on Thursday, and the Serie A side believe he will be a key part of boss Mourinho’s plans.

Abraham is expected to sign a five-year contract worth £4m a year after tax.

Chelsea will have €80m buyback option on the 23-year-old, which can be triggered in the summer of 2023.
