Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has been attracting interest from plenty of teams in the Premier League. 

Earlier this week, Lukaku's agent confirmed that he had held talks with Tottenham Hotspur, whilst the player himself has said he would be interested in making his loan permanent at Everton, should they qualify for the Champions League. 

His agent Christophe Henrotay said that he had spoken to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy over a possible switch to his parent clubs' arch rivals. He said: "I've talked to Daniel Levy once, but that doesn't mean he will definitely join Spurs." 

Henrotay was also quick to point out that Lukaku's value may be too much for clubs to try and purchase the Belgian international. 

Since Lukaku, who scored 12 Premier League goals this season, was loaned out to Everton this season, there has been a lot of doubt over his future. He had a good season for West Brom, in which he scored 17 Premier League goals, but was again shipped out on loan, despite Chelsea struggling in the striking department. 

This led to reports claiming that Chelsea were ready to let him go permanently but manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he has received no approaches.

"Have we had any approaches? No." Mourinho told reporters. 

Mourinho was quick to shy away from any questions regarding Lukaku's future but was happy with the loan deal. He said: "He is developing and that’s what you expect. With Lukaku and Everton the loan is working well. Working for Everton, for Lukaku and Chelsea."

With reports that Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa is set to join the Blues in the summer, there have been reports that all of Chelsea's strikers, including Lukaku, are up for sale. 

But Mourinho said that he thinks £50m man still has a future at Stamford Bridge. When asked about his future, Jose said: "Yes, he has a future. He’s contracted and a good professional. He works hard for the team and brings things to the team."

What do you think Chelsea should do with Lukaku? Sell him, loan him out again or finally give him his chance at the club? Tweet me @YusufSmileyKhan with your views or leave them in the comments below!
