Chelsea keen on re-signing Romelu Lukaku

According to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws Chelsea have made contact with their former striker Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku left Stamford Bridge for Everton for £28m in July 2014. He scored 45 goals in all the competitions played with Toffees in these last two seasons: 20 in 2014/2015 and 25 in the campaign that just ended.

Next Blues boss Antonio Conte would like to bring him back to Chelsea but Everton set a £ 65m fee to let him leave Goodison Park.

However, Lukaku has expressed strongly the desire to play next year’s Champions League but Chelsea are out of the European competitions next season.
