Romelu Lukaku was briefly the subject of intense speculation regarding his future at Inter Milan in the wake of Antonio Conte’s departure, but it looks like he’s happy with the new head coach, happy with his new situation, and happy to stay with the Italian champions. He’s said so himself, and now his agent has confirmed it as well.
“Romelu is happy at Inter. He has a contract so there are no problems.”

That’s not very agenty, Mr. Agent! You’re supposed to keep things vague!
Granted, nothing’s ever truly certain in football and especially during Silly Season, and recent reports hinted at Chelsea not giving up this potential pursuit completely — just as we’re not giving up our seemingly just as impossible pursuit of Erling Haaland. Plenty of work to do in either case.
So I suppose, “we’ll see”, which is what I would expect agents and players considering a move to say. But neither Lukaku nor his agent are saying that, at least not right now...
