Chelsea are still keen on bringing back their former striker Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge despite Everton have recently offered him a new and improved contract.
Newly appointed manager Ronald Koeman claimed: “He is still an Everton player but finally the board makes those kind of decisions,”
“Of course, I would like to keep all my best players but I know football. I know business. Let’s wait, the club is doing everything to keep all the players we’d like to keep in the team.”
The Toffees’ boss has confirmed his board “will do business for three or four more players” and this could be te key to allow the Belgium international striker to leave the Goodison Park when a replacement is found.
The Koeman side are reportedly edging even closer to signing Crystal Palace star Yannick Bolasie for around £28m, which is the equal fee that Everton paid to make Lukaku’s deal permanent from Chelsea in 2014.
