Romelu Lukaku demands crunch talks with Everton after Chelsea pull out of deal

Lukaku ended this season as the fourth highest scorer in the Premier League with 18 goals but Chelsea will not pay anywhere near his asking price, having offered just £30m.

Everton’s insistence on £75m saw incoming boss Antonio Conte and Chelsea decide not to wait and instead agreed a £33m deal for Marseille and striker Michy Batshuayi, 22, Lukaku’s Belgium understudy, which was completed yesterday.
