Romelu Lukaku will join the Toffees on loan for the year…
Chelsea could loan out 20-year-old striker Romelu Lukaku for the second consecutive year, with Everton borrowing the Belgian forward for the season.
Lukaku did brilliantly at West Brom last term, scoring 17 goals in the Premier League, and many believed that his form would warrant first-team chances at Stamford Bridge this season.
Following the arrival of Samuel Eto’o however, and with Jose Mourinho refusing to sell or loan either Fernando Torres or Demba Ba – Chelsea believe Lukaku will benefit from spending another year away from the club.
Everton desperately need a striker, as Croat Nikica Jelavic is struggling with poor form, and Arouna Kone has yet to score for his new club either.
