Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has held talks with Tottenham and Everton over a £20 million transfer switch this summer, according to his representative. 

As reported by The Daily Mail, the forward - who is currently on loan at Goodison Park - could be set to leave Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis in the next window, and it appears that Spurs and Everton are leading the chase for his signature. 

Despite Lukaku scoring more goals than any other Chelsea striker in the Premier League this term, it appears Jose Mourinho is ready to let him leave the club. 

And now Lukaku's representative Christophe Henrotay has revealed that he's held talks with Daniel Levy over a potential move to White Hart Lane. 

Speaking to reporters, Henrotay said: "I have had talks with Daniel Levy, but there is nothing agreed with Tottenham.

"I am talking to different clubs, but it is true that there are not exactly 20 clubs who can afford Romelu."

However, with 12 league goals to his name for Everton this season, it appears that the Toffees are in the driving seat for the player's signature. 

If reports are to be believed, Lukaku will almost definitely join Roberto Martinez's side on a permanent basis if they can secure Champions League qualification this season. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Lukaku completes a move away from Chelsea in the summer, but his long term future certainly looks unclear.

Despite Chelsea's lack of success in attack in this campaign, it now appears that his future could be away from Stamford Bridge.
