Chelsea eye replacement for Diego Costa

Liam Hanna by Liam Hanna @LiamPHanna - 0 3,764

It seems unlikely that Diego Costa will extend his stay at Chelsea beyond the current season due to strained relations with the club and the Blues have already highlighted one particular target.

That man is Everton's Romelu Lukaku. The Everton striker's goalscoring abilities have caught the eye at Chelsea and he could move to Stamford Bridge to replace the wantaway striker.

According to recent reports, Chelsea are sure that the player will leave next summer and the only remaining doubt is where the Brazil-born Spain will go.

Therefore, Chelsea plan on bringing Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge, but this is likely to prove to be a tough task.

Everton do not appear to be prepared to negotiate with clubs for their star striker, as the Belgian guarantees goals. This means that Chelsea will have to fight if they want to persuade the Toffees into letting him go.

Whatever will happen with Lukaku remains to be seen, but if reports in England are correct, Chelsea will try to make him a 'Blue' once again.
