Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that he could rejoin Everton this summer, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The Belgian international, who was on loan at the Merseyside outfit last season, has insisted that a Goodison Park return remains a possibility.
Speaking to reporters, the Chelsea forward said: “I have the opportunity to stay at Everton, it is a possibility and it is something we will have to talk about. But first I want to go back to Belgium, see my family and get some rest.”
Everton fans will certainly be hoping that the young striker returns to their club this summer, after his successful spell last season. Playing a key role in Everton's fine season, Lukaku scored 15 league goals in 2013/14.
And now, he could be set for another stint at Roberto Martinez's side, as Everton target a place in Europe's elite competition.
Despite having impressed in England's elite division over the past couple of years, it's uncertain as to whether Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants the Belgian ace in his squad next term.
The 'Special One' has already offloaded the likes of David Luiz, Samuel Eto'o, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, and it appears that Lukaku could follow them out of the Stamford Bridge exit door.
If Lukaku is to stay at Stamford Bridge for the up coming campaign, then he will have to compete for places with Diego Costa, who has agreed to join Mourinho's side.
Despite enduring a miserable World Cup with Spain, Costa is recognised as one of the world's leading strikers and will join Fernando Torres in attack next season.
