The ex-Everton marksman was then asked for his thoughts at returning to his former stomping ground.

To which he said: “I’m very happy to be back!”

Lukaku will now undergo his Inter medical on Wednesday before his return is officially announced.

The club’s ultras have warned their fellow fans that no-one should welcome him as they declared he will have to earn their respect following his 2021 exit.
