Everton will consider a loan move for Romelu Lukaku in January to bolster their forward line.

The Goodison club enquired about taking the Belgian, 18, when he joined Chelsea for £18million from Anderlecht in the summer. Now a move may depend on Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba.

Anelka, 32, has been offered a stunning £9.16m-a-year deal to go to China with Shanghai Shenhua. He is out of contract in the summer but Sportsmail understands Chelsea may be willing to sell in January for £1m.

Despite Bill Kenwright recently claiming funds were available for January, Everton are not particularly rich.

A temporary move for LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan looks to be on the cards with the MLS season now over, and loan moves would appear Everton’s most likely port of call for reinforcement.

Chelsea are keen to give their teenage Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku experience – particularly in the Premier League – and Everton would be a good fit.

Toffees boss David Moyes is well versed in bringing the best out of youngsters, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Jack Rodwell and now Ross Barkley flourishing under his coaching.

Perhaps Lukaku would also benefit from a spell on Merseyside, and become the top class striker Chelsea hope for.
