Napoli table opportunistic first bid for Romelu Lukaku, although it is less than HALF of Chelsea’s asking price

Napoli are ready to enter negotiations with Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku, but their first offer is far short of the Blues’ asking price.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Chelsea are eager to sell Lukaku this summer following his season-long loan at Roma, but they are insisting any interested party will have to match the £38 million ($48m) release clause in his contract if they wish to land him.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Having just hired Antonio Conte as their new head coach, Napoli are eager to reunite the Belgian striker with the manager he worked alongside at Inter and La Repubblica reports they have made an offer worth €15m (£13m/$16m) plus another €3m (£2.5m/$3.2m) in bonuses.
