Striker Romelu Lukaku has told his Everton team-mates that he wants to leave to play for Chelsea, according to the Daily Star.
The Belgian is desperate to make a return to Stamford Bridge according to recent reports and the Blues have already made two official offers to sign him.
Both of them were rejected but they are expected to make a new bid in the coming days.
Last week, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte refused to reject reports claiming that the 23-year-old will be signed this week.
"I do not want to speak about the players of other teams," Conte told reporters.
"This is not respectful to the club or to their players. I prefer not to speak.
"The transfer market is not the most important thing.
"The important thing is to build a team – a team that plays in good and bad situations and concentrates and works together."
