Romelu Lukaku has told Everton he won't sign a new deal with the club, according to several reports. Chelsea reportedly bid £57 million for the Belgian in the Summer of 2016 but Everton wanted £75 million.

Costa has netted 49 Premier League goals in 79 games for Chelsea, while Lukaku has scored 47 in 100 games across the same amount of seasons.

Romelu Lukaku is stalling on signing a new deal at Everton as he wants to keep his options open this summer, sources confirmed to ESPN FC.

Lukaku informed the Blues' hierarchy that he had no plans to commit to a proposed five-year deal despite repeated pledges from agent Mino Raiola.

Would Lukaku move back to Chelsea?

The Telegraph report that Antonio Conte is also keen to secure the signature of Lukaku's teammate and England global Ross Barkley.

Reaction on social media has been reflective, with most fans agreeing that whilst it would be a shame to see him leave, no player is bigger than the club.

Administration had imposed Section 144 in the district court premises and within 500 metres of the Maruti Suzuki plant in Manesar. The violence had left Maruti Suzuki Human Resource Department General Manager Ashwin Kumar Dev dead and over 50 persons injured.

Lukaku's ambition is to play in the Champions League and compete for trophies with a bigger club and after three years at Everton, the Belgium worldwide feels it's the flawless time for him to move on.

These are all traits Lukaku has shown in recent times - a move to Chelsea would be ideal in developing him as a player, and indeed taking him to the next level.

Recently Lukaku hinted that he needs Champions League football to be taken seriously as a world-class striker.

As well as being Ibrahimovic and Pogba's agent, Raioloa also represents Henrikh Mkhitaryan, meaning he has strong links within Old Trafford.

However, tonight word is circulating that the 23-year-old forward, who still has two years to run on his current Toffees contract, has pulled out of negotiations as he has "no desire" to sign an extension.

Evertonians are now waiting for the news that will prove him right. "No one should worry, he's our player".
