Romelu Lukaku could look to quit Chelsea for Tottenham transfer to reunite with Conte after saying he is 'unhappy'

ROMELU LUKAKU could reportedly look to reunite with Antonio Conte at Tottenham after claiming he is ‘unhappy’ at Chelsea.

The 28-year-old revealed he never wanted to leave Inter Milan last summer as he explained his frustrations at the Blues in an explosive interview last week.

Lukaku scored 47 goals in 72 top-flight matches under Conte and helped fire them to the Serie A title last season before both men departed the club.
