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.

Since the arrival of Antonio Conte at Chelsea, he has been looking to add strength in depth to his defence.

He managed to keep club captain John Terry for another year which was a huge boost for everyone involved with the Blues. Since then, he has been heavily targeting Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

The London club have had a bid rejected by the Italian side who are more than keen to keep him at the club.

Arsenal and Everton have also been monitoring the situation.

Koulibaly‘s agent, Bruno Satin, has told Goal that for the moment the discussions are confidential but his future will be decided and announced in the next 2 or 3 days.

“Our discussions at the moment are confidential.

“We will be able to announce something in the next few days, two or three days.”
