Romelu Lukaku, a Belgian international striker, will be loaned by Chelsea to Serie A team Roma, according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday.

Roma will pay the London club 5.8 million euros ($6.2 million), and the player will get a 7.5 million euro yearly wage, according to the Italian sports daily.

In June, Houssem Aouar made a five-year transfer from Lyon.

After the first two Serie A games, Roma has one point.
