Chelsea are said to be favourites for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, with Jose Mourinho also said to be interested in the striker.

Lukaku snubbed a lucrative new deal worth around £120,000-a-week to extend his stay at Goodison Park earlier this year, and his agent Mino Raiola has admitted that the 24-year-old is set for a move.

But Raiola said: “Lukaku had a promise that if certain clubs came this summer that he could leave.

“We are not in concrete talks with anybody at this moment, but hearing the market I think some clubs will contact Everton.

“If the price is right for Everton and the project is right for Lukaku then I think he will want to make another step, but we are not there yet.”

Everton want a record fee for the Belgian who has just two years left on his contract, and no club will want to break a record in such a situation.
