Chelsea have placed a 25 million price-tag on striker Romelu Lukaku, who is currently on a season-long loan at Everton. Lukaku and manager Jose Mourinho have been at odds in the media this season, which has sparked reports that the Belgian could leave Chelsea on a permanent move in the summer. Lukaku spent last season on loan at West Brom, impressing with 17 goals in 35 Premier League appearances at the Baggies, but was unable to convince the Portuguese that he was deserving of a place in his Chelsea squad as he was allowed to join the Toffees for the 2013/14 campaign. At the Goodison Park club, Lukaku has scored 10 goals in 21 appearances – outscoring Chelsea’s forwards – but, despite having a contract that runs up until 2016, the 20-year-old could be allowed to leave permanently in the summer. According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Chelsea have placed a 25 million price-tag on Lukaku – while the hefty sum is likely to rule out Everton from signing the striker on a permanent deal, other interested parties such as Monaco, who have been linked with the forward this week, would be able to comfortably foot the bill.
