Chelsea confident of signing Everton striker Romelu Lukaku


Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer and the Belgian is a target for Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea.

The Red Devils are in need of a striker this summer and have been linked with several strikers such as Benzema, Morata, Ibrahimovic and Lukaku.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking for an alternative to Diego Costa as well. The Spaniard’s poor form and injuries cost the side dearly last season and Chelsea want a top quality alternative in their ranks this time.

Since leaving Chelsea, Lukaku has been one of the best strikers in the country. The Belgian has been on fire for Everton.

According to Evening Standard, a host of European clubs are chasing him but he has already made a decision regarding his future. The report states that he prefers a move back to Chelsea and the Blues are confident of landing him for a fee of 65 million pounds.

The Belgian believes that he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge and wants to return to London this summer. He is expected to snub the advances of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Lukaku has scored 61 goals in 3 seasons with Everton.
