Chelsea have had an offer for Romelu Lukaku worth £85m rejected by Inter Milan.
Chelsea’s proposal would have also seen left-back Marcos Alonso move to Inter, according to Sky in Italy.
The offer came after the Premier League club were warned it would take an offer of more than €100m (£85m) to tempt the Italian champions to sell Lukaku.
The 28-year-old played a key role in Inter’s Serie A win last season, scoring 24 goals.
Inter need to reduce their wage bill this summer and title-winning boss Antonio Conte left the club in May amid concerns about plans to cut his budget.
However, Lukaku is very happy and settled at Inter and ready to give his all next season.
After finishing in UEFA’s official team of Euro 2020, he went on holiday to the Caribbean and the USA, where he stuck rigidly to his personal training programme.
