Chelsea looking to offload £17m star

Jose Mourinho is looking to sell £17million forward Romelu Lukaku, but not to another Premier League club, according to the Express.

Chelsea are ready to cash in on the Belgian international, who has spent a successful season on loan with Everton, having enjoyed another loan spell with West Brom the season before.

Mourinho is reportedly looking to cash in to fund moves for two world class strikers in the summer, with Diego Costa of Atletico Madrid and Diego Cavani of Paris St Germain top of his transfer wishlist.

Lukaku is the forward likely to generate the most money from a sale, after two successful goal scoring seasons in England’s top flight.

The 20-year-old struck 17 goals in 35 appearances for West Brom last season, and has managed 11 Premier League goals in 22 games for the Toffee’s this season under Roberto Martinez, who has made no secret of his desire to sign the striker on a permanent basis.

However, Mourinho remains keen to sell Lukaku abroad, following news that both Roma and Borussia Dortmund have expressed an interest.
