Roma's potential move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku hinges on on the player's contract discussions with the Blues, according to talkSPORT.

If reports are to be believed, the Belgian forward could still extend his current contract with the Blues beyond the end of the 2015/16 season. 

Lukaku has spent his last two seasons away from Stamford Bridge, having been on loan at West Brom and Everton, and now it appears that a number of clubs are ready to sign him this summer. 

Previous reports had suggested that Tottenham were ready to make a £25 million move for the striker, but the White Hart Lane outfit may now have to go head-to-head with Roma for the player's services. 

The Italian giants have secured a place in next year's Champions League, but it remains to be seen as to whether Lukaku will be tempted with a move to the Serie A. 

It appears that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho could still allow Lukaku to depart the club on loan for another season, with Roma potentially having a further option over a permanent deal. 

For now though, Chelsea's immediate attention will turn to their Champions League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid tonight. 

The Blues will be desperate to secure a victory at Stamford Bridge as they go in search of their third successive European final.
