Chelsea are said to be strongly interested in landing Everton striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.

According to Standard Sport, the Blues plan to offer Romelu Lukaku higher wages than what Diego Costa currently earns in order to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.

Costa who’s one of the highest earners in the Chelsea team might find himself behind Lukaku, in terms of wages, if the Belgian joins Chelsea.

Lukaku confirmed yesterday that staying at Everton “is not an option” this summer and has revealed that he’s in talks to leave Everton.

Lukaku rejected Everton’s offer of £140,000 a week in March because of his desire to join a bigger club, where he feels he can win silverware.

Costa currently earns £150,000 a week at Chelsea, and reports claim Chelsea are willing to pay Lukaku more than Costa’s current package.
