Tottenham are reportedly set to make a £20m bid for wantaway Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, according to the Metro.
The Spurs are in the market for a top quality striker to lead their line next season as the futures of current forwards Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are still uncertain.
Arsenal have also been linked to the Belgian forward as they look to bolster their forward line and add a quality striker to play alongside or as a backup for Olivier Giroud.
Lukaku joined the Blues in 2011 from Anderlecht and spent most of his first season playing for the Chelsea reserves, with only a few run outs for the first team. Since then the 21-year-old striker has spent the last two seasons on-loan, the first with West Bromwich Albion and in the previous campaign he was in Merseyside with Everton.
The Belgian striker had an impressive season while on loan with Everton scoring 15 goals in the 31 league games he played. This was when the first choice strikers at Chelsea struggled for goals, scoring just 19 goals among the three of them in the Premier League.
However, he has still not managed to convince the Chelsea hierarchy that he deserves a chance to be the Blues number one striker, as Chelsea have gone ahead and completed a big money move, which saw the arrival of Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.
The Chelsea striker, who was part of the Belgian team that made it till the quarter-finals of the ongoing World Cup, has opened up about his plans for the upcoming season. The Belgian, who wants to play regular football, either wants to remain at Chelsea or be sold to another club. He feels that another loan would not be suitable to him.
"What I don't want is to be loaned out," Lukaku said, as quoted in the Mirror
"I am 21 and I have been loaned for the last two seasons. Thibaut Courtois was loaned for three seasons and will be without doubt the first-choice Chelsea goalkeeper."
"And Kevin De Bruyne has been transferred permanently to Wolfsburg. They are free in their heads - it is not my case. That would free me totally," the former Anderlecht striker added.
