The 21 year old is set to pen a five year deal after agreeing terms on a £75k a week deal with Roberto Martinez looking to the Belgian to recreate the form the powerful striker displayed during his loan spell at Goodison Park last season.

Jose Mourinho has not seemingly been convinced by Lukaku’s performances during his spells away from Stamford Bridge and the summer captures of Diego Costa and Didier Drogba have all but ended the former Anderlecht’s spell at the west London outfit.

Lukaku netted 15 goals in 29 Premier League starts for the Toffees last term and having brought in Gareth Barry, another talent who impressed on loan in 2013/14, Martinez has apparently won the race to capture the young marksman.

The £25m fee smashes Everton’s previous record transfer, which came in the form of the £15m spent on fellow Belgian Marouane Fellaini back in 2008.

Mourinho has done well to cash-in on players he doesn’t deem as worthy of a regular spot in his first team set-up, picking up £50m from the sale of David Luiz to PSG and £37m from the same of Juan Mata to Chelsea in the last two transfer windows.
