Back in the summer of 2013, Everton signed a promising Belgian striker on loan from Chelsea and he was an absolute revelation. Romelu Lukaku scored 15 goals in 31 Premier League games and, at the end of that season, moved to Goodison Park permanently for £28 million.

Could history be about to repeat itself?

According to the Mirror, Everton are once again interested in signing a promising Belgian striker on loan from Chelsea.

It is understood that manager Marco Silva is planning to ask his Stamford Bridge counterpart Maurizio Sarri about the prospect of lending Michy Batshuayi to Goodison Park.

The former Marseille striker might have made just four Premier League starts in his two years as a Chelsea player, but he is capable of scoring goals at a prolific rate if he is given a regular run in the side.

Batshuayi found the net nine times in just 14 Bundesliga starts for Dortmund during a loan spell from January to May. And he would probably be Everton’s first-choice striker, although the Turkey international Cenk Tosun might have something to say about that.

Everton fans are thrilled by the prospect of Batshuayi’s loan arrival, but is it worth launching a cheeky permanent bid?
