Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly set to swoop for Chelsea flop Romelu Lukaku to rescue him from his nightmare return to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues bought Lukaku for a club-record £98million fee during the summer transfer window in the hope that he could fire them to a Premier League title challenge. But those hopes proved to be misguided with the Belgian struggling since his arrival in London.
