Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge, after leaving to join Everton three years ago.

However, former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley believes Chelsea would be better off going for Tottenham striker and Premier League top scorer Harry Kane and not Romelu Lukaku.

Burley, who made 112 appearances for the Blues, wants Chelsea to add £20million to the fee for Lukaku and bid for Kane instead.

“What are they saying the fee’s going to be? £80million?” Burley said on ESPN FC.

“If it was me, and I don’t think they would get them and they probably wouldn’t, but I would go with another £20million or £10million to Tottenham and say ‘give me a price for Harry Kane’.

“I’m never a fan of somebody going back to a club for a second time.

“Also the pressure playing for Everton and the pressure playing for a Chelsea or even a Liverpool, certainly of old, or Man United is a completely different mindset.

“You’re the top guy at Everton, you’re expected to be around sixth or seventh in the table, anything else is a bonus.

“That isn’t the case when you’re playing in London.”
