Romelu Lukaku’s career as his time in Italy has becomes limited, but his goal-scoring exploits have torn Serie A apart.
In 2019-20 he bagged 34 goals across all competitions for the Nerazzurri but ended the campaign empty-handed after a heartbreaking Europa League final defeat to Sevilla. Last term he hit 30 in all comps and got his hands on the Scudetto as well as the Player of the Year award in Italy.

Lukaku’s career in England
Lukaku’s tally of 113 Premier League goals places his 20th on the all-time charts. 68 of those were scored for Everton, 28 for Man United and 17 for West Bromwich Albion. 113 goals and 42 assists in 252 English top-flight appearances is a superb record and, judging by his development in the last two seasons with Inter, coupled with the fact that he’s just turned 28, the only way is up.
Cumulative transfer fees
Once Lukaku’s proposed €115m switch to Stamford Bridge is signed and sealed, the cumulative transfer fees paid for the Belian throughout his career will exceed €327m.
Of Lukaku’s 316 career goals for club and country (he’s struck 64 times for Belgium in 98 caps), none of them has come for Chelsea. In his first stint with the Blues, he made 15 appearances without troubling the scorers, but that’s definitely about to change when he lands in the capital again.
