Everton are confident of completing a deal to sign Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku on a permanent basis, the Daily Mail has reported.

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku returns for pre-season training with Chelsea on Wednesday, with several rumours linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge. As things stand, he will be battling with Fernando Torres and new signings Diego Costa and Didier Drogba for a place in the starting line-up.

He spent last season on loan at Everton and finished as the club’s top scorer, with manager Roberto Martinez making no secret of his desire to bring the Belgian back to Merseyside in a permanent transfer, although they have faced competition from other clubs. However, Martinez told Toffees supporters at their pre-season tour of Thailand that he would be getting Lukaku.

And Head of Recruitment Ian Atkins believes that Lukaku wants to join Everton. He said: 'Romelu had a terrific season for Everton last year and I know everyone at the football club wants to see him back.

'Hopefully things can be sorted out, I think he’s quite settled in his mind that he wants to come to Everton, and hopefully he’ll be pulling on our blue shirt again next term. Our loan signings all did brilliant for us last season. Gareth Barry has signed permanently now which is fantastic, and hopefully Lukaku will as well.'
