Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is set for a January loan move to Malaga according to talkSPORT.
Reports in Italy claim that the cash-rich La Liga outfit are planning to sign the 18-year-old Belgian international when the transfer window reopens.
Lukaku only moved to Stamford Bridge this summer in an £18million deal from Anderlecht, but has started just two games for Chelsea this season, both in the Carling Cup.
Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has high hopes for the striker, but may consider sending him out on loan in order to gain more first-team experience.
Earmarked as the long-term replacement to Didier Drogba, Lukaku could benefit from a spell in Spain if he is given the opportunity to continue his development.
His last appearance for Chelsea came from the bench in last weekend's Barclays Premier League defeat to Arsenal, and after being left out of the UEFA Champions League squad-list, Lukaku was unavailable for selection in Tuesday's draw with Genk.
