According to Simon Johnson of the Evening Standard, Romelu Lukaku is one of Chelsea’s two main transfer targets this summer, the other being Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea’s pursuit of the Belgian last season is well-documented, but Everton held on to their star forward.
Everton want Lukaku to sign a new deal with the club, but it just might not be, as he was coy in an interview with Play sports.
Although Lukaku did have a big grin on his face when answering the question and was flanked by Everton’s head of media and communications Brian Doogan. It could perhaps be that the Belgium forward was being a little mischievous, or that he was sending an indirect message to Chelsea.
The former Chelsea striker is reportedly interested in Champions League football, and a bid from Chelsea this summer might unsettle him.
