According to a report on ESPN, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku wants a return to Chelsea this summer.

Lukaku has hinted that he will exit Goodison Park in the coming months, with the 23-year-old set to be in-demand in the upcoming transfer window.

Lukaku has developed a reputation as one of the finest strikers in the Premier League, as he has scored prolifically for a number of seasons despite his tender years.
