The 28-year-old Belgian striker made his sensational return to the Premier League club back in August, with Chelsea paying a club-record £97.5m fee to Inter Milan.
Lukaku has made eight Premier League starts under Tuchel and scored five times in 13 league appearances for Chelsea this season.
However, the Belgium international has been affected by injuries and coronavirus, with Tuchel leaving out Lukaku from the starting XI even when he has been fit.
Lukaku opened the scoring for Chelsea on Wednesday against Brighton, but the Seagulls secured a point thanks to a dramatic injury-time equaliser by Danny Welbeck.
The Chelsea striker has vowed to remain “professional” despite being unhappy about his situation, but he also claimed he would keep on fighting at the club.
Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia: “Physically I’m fine, even better than before. After two years in Italy, in which I worked a lot at Inter with trainers and nutritionists, I am physically fine.
“But I'm not happy with the situation, this is normal. I think the coach has chosen to play with another system, I just have to not give up and continue to work and be a professional.
“I am not happy with the situation, but I am a worker and I must not give up.”
Inter splashed out a club-record £74m to land Lukaku from Manchester United in 2019.
The former United and Everton striker made 95 appearances for the San Siro outfit and scored 64 times during his two seasons with Inter.
Lukaku lifted the Serie A title under former Inter manager Antonio Conte last season before making his summer transfer to Chelsea.
The former Inter star added that the Nerazzurri will always be in his heart and he is in “love with Italy.”
Lukaku added: “I think everything that happened was not supposed to happen like this.
“How I left Inter, how I communicated with the fans, this bothers me because it is not the right time now, but even when I left it was not the right time.
“Now I think it is right to speak because I have always said that I have Inter in my heart, I will return to play there, I really hope so.
“I am in love with Italy, this is rightly the time to talk and let people know what really happened without talking badly about people because I am not like that.”
