Arsenal and Tottenham have been sounded out by middle man as Chelsea look to offload Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to The Daily Mail

If reports are to be believed, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to let the Belgian forward depart Stamford Bridge, but wants as much as £40 million for his services. 

Lukaku - who has spent the past couple of seasons on loan away from Chelsea has impressed, having scored 30 league goals in total for both West Brom and Everton. 

The striker's goals have helped Everton challenge for a Champions League spot this season, and it appears that the Toffees want to keep him at Goodison Park. 

However, as the opening to the transfer window draws ever closer, the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham could step up their interest in the highly rated forward. 

Chelsea seem on the lookout for potential buyers and it seems the two north London rivals are potential buyers this season. 

Both sides are in need of improving in their forward ranks ahead of next season. Tottenham haven't replaced Jermain Defoe after selling him in the January transfer window and Roberto Soldado has had a nightmare first season at White Hart Lane. 

Meanwhile, Yaya Sanogo and Nicklas Bendtner are Olivier Giroud's only competition in attack for Arsenal.

It remains to be seen as to whether the likes of Arsenal and  Tottenham make a move for the star in the near future, as the Chelsea star faces an uncertain summer.
