Sources close to Chelsea: Blues have agreed £160,000-a-week deal personal terms with striker


Chelsea are not interested in Alvaro Morata and have reached a £160,000-a-week deal with Romelu Lukaku, the Daily Star has revealed.

Everton are determined to ask £100million to sell the Belgium international.

For now, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is not ready to pay so much to secure the services of the 24-year-old.

But manager Antonio Conte has Lukaku at the top of his shopping list for the summer.

The Blues will be without Diego Costa next season after the Italian made it clear that he's no longer important for his team.

On Tuesday, former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole has urged his former club to make a move for Lukaku saying that the Blues need a strong striker with plenty of Premier League experience.

Conte is hoping for Chelsea to reach a financial agreement with Everton as soon as possible in order to plan pre-season accordingly.
