However, it now appears a third club have entered the running who sport not only the crown of being their league’s champions, but also that they will be playing in the Champions League next season.
Serie A title winners Inter Milan are reportedly interested in bringing in Edouard to the club this summer.
Antonio Conte’s departure has not dissuaded the club from pursuing possible transfer targets despite the financial pressures.
Not Lukaku replacement
It is expected that should Inter move to sign Edouard it would not be as a replacement for Lukaku and instead to bolster attacking options.
The Belgian forward confirmed yesterday that he would not be leaving Inter.
“Yes, I am staying. I’ve already had contact with the man who normally becomes our new manager. Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet… but it was a very positive conversation,” he said,

This will come as a huge boost to the Nerazzurri who would have been concerned that Conte’s departure would spark an opening of the floodgates for possible exits.
Achraf Hakimi has looked to making a move to sign for PSG but news of further departures has slowed prior to and since Lukaku’s interview.
Paris Saint-Germain are still working to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter. Price tag €80m, so PSG have to raise the bid. FC Bayern have not opened talks. 🇲🇦
