IHN SPT 231113-55

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 giants Chelsea.

Apparently, Chelsea are looking for an alternative to Diego Costa. 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. Lukaku has scored 61 goals in 3 seasons with Everton.

According to latest reports, Chelsea are looking to return with an improved bid of 68 million pounds for the Everton star, after the Toffees rejected a 57 million pounds offer for him last week.

The report also adds that Lukaku wants a return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are confident of signing him this summer.

Earlier this year, Lukaku stated that he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge and wants to return to London.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Polish keeper Marcin Bulka on their official website.

The 16-year-old Polish keeper completed his transfer from FCB Escola Varsovia and is expected to join up with Jody Morris’s youth team ahead of the new campaign.
