Everton set to offer Chelsea target Lukaku a contract extension

by -

Everton are keen to offer a new contrat to their star Romelu Lukaku: British press reports that the Toffees are starting talks with their forward and his agent, Mino Raiola.

Chelsea tried to sign him last summer, placing a stunning € 75m ( £ 62m) fee but the Liverpool side rejected it, and now the Belgian striker is repaying them with an impressive start of the season, with 4 goals in 4 appearances in the Premier League. That’s why they want to give him a deal extension: the current one will expire in 2019.

Chelsea are still reportedly confident they can lure Lukaku back in a near future, anyway it will be more difficult to seal his signature should he sign a new contract.
