The agent of Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is understood to have already held talks with Atletico Madrid about the possibility of moving to the Vicente Calderon Stadium on loan next season.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, the Belgium international's representative Christophe Henrotay - who is also responsible for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois - is keen for the 21-year-old to leave west London again in 2014/15 ahead of an expected increase in competition for places in the Blues attack.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, and Henrotay is proposing the idea of Lukaku replacing the prolific marksman in Diego Simeone's side next term.

Lukaku has thrived away from Stamford Bridge during previous loan spells at West Bromwich Albion and Everton, and has appeared reluctant to settle for a bit-part role under Jose Mourinho.

Henrotay has played an instrumental role in Courtois's continued loan spell in Spain - which now stretches over the past three seasons - so it wouldn't be surprising to see another of his Chelsea clients make the familiar switch from the Premier League to La Liga.

There had been suggestions that Mourinho was planning to offer Lukaku a new long-term contract, but that might be in order to protect the significant investment they made when signing the striker from Anderlecht in 2011.
