Lukaku is set to leave Chelsea following talks with Thomas Tuchel and the club’s new owner Todd Boehly.
An agreement has yet to be reached between Chelsea and Inter, with the Premier League club demanding a loan fee of £20million, while they also want the majority if not all of his £300,000-a-week wages paid.
Inter have made an initial offer of £7million as they look to secure a loan deal.
Inter are also aiming to sign Paulo Dybala on a free transfer when he departs Juventus
Antonello said: ‘There is a great desire of the player to return.
‘The economic and financial feasibility must be checked and some technical problems must be solved. We will try to do it in the necessary time.’
Lukaku played for Inter between 2019 and 2021, scoring 64 goals in 95 games.
Last season Lukaku scored 15 goals in 44 appearances for Chelsea as he struggled for consistency despite an encouraging start to the campaign.
Dybala is poised to leave Juventus on a free transfer, with Inter in pole position to sign him. According to Tuttomercatoweb, most of the contract details have been finalised but the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement over bonus payments.
There is also uncertainty over the future of Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, with Tottenham reportedly interested in signing him. However, Inter are eager to keep the 24-year-old.
