A Chinese consortium seeking to buy AC Milan are reportedly intent on signing Romelu Lukaku. The Everton forward has been strongly linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer and the Italian giants are the latest club to express an interest in his services.
The group of Chinese investors are apparently seeking to acquire an 80% stake in the club with a lot of cash investment to restore Milan to its former glory days. As part of their plan, the investment group hope to agree a deal for Lukaku, who has recently suggested he would like to leave the Toffees this summer.
However, according to Gazzetta World, Milan faces stiff competition from Serie A rivals Juventus. But even if Milan are unable to land Lukaku's signature, the consortium hopes to agree a deal for another big-name player.
Lukaku has impressed for Everton in the last two seasons, scoring and 20 and 25 goals respectively in all competitions. The Belgian recently said he was currently focusing only on the Euros and has left his agent to deal with his future.
"It's my agent who is dealing with [my future]. I'm just focused on Belgium, and the most important thing is helping my team," Lukaku said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard.
