What the papers say

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, who has spent the last season on loan at Roma, has attracted interest from AC Milan, Napoli and Fenerbahce, but has left the door open for a potential move to the Saudi Pro League, according to the Telegraph. The 31-year-old scored 13 goals in Serie A last season.

The Times says Napoli would only make a move for Lukaku if they sell their Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen, who scored 15 goals in 25 league games for the side last season.
