According to reports, Chelsea are planning a remarkable transfer u-turn as they look to bring Everton hitman Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian international originally moved to west London in 2011 after signing for the Blues from Anderlecht in his homeland.

The powerful striker struggled to make an impact at the club, and despite impressing on loan at both West Bromwich Albion and Everton, he was allowed to leave for Goodison Park in 2014 after failing to score a single league goal with the Pensioners.

Now, according to the Telegraph, the Blues are keen on bringing the attacker back to the club and have stepped up their interest in the frontman.
