The former Manchester United striker has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League with Chelsea and Manchester City both credit with a move for the 28-year-old.

However, the Belgium international has ruled out summer transfer from the Italian champions and is looking forward to playing under Simone Inzaghi, who is set to replace Antonio Conte as head coach.

“Yes, I am staying. I’ve already had contact with the man who will become our new manager. Maybe I shouldn’t say that yet,” Lukaku told VTM.

“It was a very positive conversation. There’s also the challenge of [winning the league] again. I feel good at Inter.”

Lukaku, who will represent Belgium at this summer’s European Championships, still has more than three years left to run on his contract at San Siro.
