Romelu Lukaku is a man in form, and he has taken his form to new heights this season. He’s currently the league’s top scorer with 16 goals, after hitting four past Bournemouth, in Everton’s 6-3 win against Bournemouth.
Everton are keen on giving Lukaku a new contract to tie him down at the club, but reports have it that the contract renewal has hit a snag.
Daily Express claim that while Everton have moved to secure his future on Merseyside, a new deal has not been agreed.
According to the Daily Express, Antonio Conte is reportedly plotting an £80 million move to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season. And he is apparently open to the prospect of rejoining Chelsea, which perhaps explains why a new Everton contract is still unsigned.
Daily Express also revealed that Conte has requested to the Chelsea board they buy Lukaku, with a new deal no closer at Everton.
