Chelsea set to flog Ike Ugbo to Genk for £4m and on target to raise Romelu Lukaku's £97.5m transfer fee in sales alone

IKE UGBO and Tammy Abraham can take Chelsea's summer sales to £102million – funding the £97.5m return of fellow striker Romelu Lukaku.

Genk are closing on a £4m deal for 22-year-old Ugbo, despite interest from Fulham, Watford, Monaco and Anderlecht.


And Chelsea have accepted Roma's £34m offer for England star Abraham, 23, although the Arsenal target has yet to agree personal terms.

The Blues have already made £64m from offloading TWENTY-FIVE PLAYERS since June.

Two centre-backs dominate the incoming fees – Fikayo Tomori's £27m exit to AC Milan and Crystal Palace paying £21m for Marc Guehi.

But the biggest names to depart are £9m frontman Olivier Giroud, who also joined Milan, and Victor Moses, a £4.4m recruit for Spartak Moscow.

And with Chelsea long facing claims of 'hoarding' young talent, FOURTEEN players departed for free.

In fact, on top of all the permanent departures, a further nine have been loaned out, most notably Scotland midfielder Billy Gilmour to promoted Norwich.

Selling Abraham would all but guarantee the Blues soaring past £100m raised in transfers.

But it could be the most complicated sale.

That's because the six-cap poacher would reportedly prefer moving to the Emirates than Rome.

Nonetheless, The Athletic say Roma general manager Tiago Pinto is flying to London in an attempt to finalise a deal.

Meanwhile, Inter Milan's ex-Manchester United hitman Lukaku arrived by private jet on Wednesday night as his Stamford Bridge reunion nears completion.
