Romelu Lukaku could make a surprise transfer deadline move to Everton on a season-long loan, according to Sky Sports News.
The big Belgian striker hopes to feature in Jose Mourinho’s first team plans, but the recent signing of Samuel Eto’o has seen him fall down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.
Yet the blue half of Merseyside could provide an unlikely solution for the man who lit up West Brom with 19 goals last year – despite the loan signing of Gerard Deulofeu, manager Roberto Martinez remains in the market for a forward and Lukaku could fit that bill.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, former Everton striker Tony Cottee welcomed the news, believing that if Lukaku wants a consistent run at first team football, a move away from Chelsea might be a good idea. He said:
“I’d like to see that happening – he was fantastic last year at West Brom, scored a load of goals and he’s a really good player.
“Is he going to play for Chelsea? Probably not, so it just depends. Eto’o has arrived at Chelsea, Torres is still there, so Lukaku at Everton would be a fantastic signing, I really think that … but I think there’ll be a lot of juggling in the next three to four hours.”
One thing’s for certain – Cottee’s not wrong.

Everton look to be the busiest of the Premier League clubs in the final minutes of the transfer window, as they look to tie up deals for three new signings.
According to reports coming from Sky Sports News, the Merseyside club are set to sign Manchester City’s England midfielder Gareth Barry, as the player has reportedly turned up at the club’s training ground.
And the club are also now finally coming close to a deal for Wigan midfielder James McCarthy, after Dave Whelan finally announced himself happy with the terms offered from the Toffees. The club will now thrash out terms for the player, ahead of unveiling the player after the deadline of 11pm passes.
The fee that Sky Sports are talking about is 13million, and the only sticking point is how the payment is broken down.
And finally, Sky Sports say that Everton have moved back into poll position to sign Chelsea’s Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku. All three would be significant boosts for Roberto Martinez, who still faces the possibility of life without Marouane Fellaini, with Manchester United likely to unveil the signing of the Belgian.
