Romelu Lukaku is close to sealing a return to Everton, according to a report.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is reportedly on the verge of returning to Everton.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Goodison Park and found the back of the net 15 times in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, Lukaku is on top of Roberto Martinez's list of targets and a deal could be concluded within the next 48 hours.

It is believed that a move for Demba Ba was being considered, but his wage demands ended any chance of a transfer.

The report goes on to claim that Everton are in talks with Monaco over a loan deal for Lacina Traore, while they are also interested in signing Ferencvaros midfielder Muhamed Besic.
