Chelsea offer Loic Remy to Everton as Romelu Lukaku makeweight?

Chelsea have offered Everton a player-plus-cash deal worth around £70m to sign Romelu Lukaku, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly stepped up their pursuit to re-sign striker Romelu Lukaku by proposing a cash-plus-player offer to Everton.

The Blues are apparently willing to offload Loic Remy in a move that could eventually be worth £70m, smashing their previous transfer record of £50m to sign Fernando Torres.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea were struggling to tempt their Premier League rivals into accepting any sort of straight-cash deal for the prolific Belgium international.

It is claimed that Antonio Conte is hopeful that Remy, who has seen his chances further limited at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of Michy Batshuayi this summer, could now act as a turning point in talks.

Ronald Koeman is said to be after a replacement for Lukaku before offloading him, with Wolfsburg's Bas Dost and Wilfried Bony two alternative options.

Everton have signed two players so far this summer - Maarten Stekelenburg and Idrissa Gueye - and are understood to want to bring in more new faces before allowing both Lukaku and Manchester City target John Stones to leave the club.
