Everton promised Romelu Lukaku he could leave this summer - Mino Raiola

Romelu Lukaku's agent Mino Raiola says Everton have promised the striker he can leave this summer if certain clubs come in for him - but insists a transfer is not close. "We are not in concrete talks with anybody, but hearing the market I think some clubs will contact Everton".

Lukaku, who scored 26 goals for Everton last season, is now refusing to sign a new contract at Goodison Park as he pushes for a move away from the Toffees in this summer's transfer window.

Chelsea have been touted as the front-runners with the Evening Standard reporting last week that Antonio Conte has stepped-up his interest in luring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge after making him his No.1 target.

Lukaku has been valued at around £100 million - a price that would break the previous world record fee Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba.

With Lukaku likely to be in-demand this summer, Chelsea are also ready to move for unsettled Arsenal star Sanchez as he stalls on signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

He continued: "I didn't hear that, but it doesn't surprise me seeing what other strikers are going for".

Asked about that previous assertion, said: "Yes".

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. "We knew that this summer if somebody would come and satisfy Everton, there is a possibility that he leaves, yes".

"In two years' time maybe £100million for a guy who makes (scores) 26 goals is a good deal", Raiola told talkSPORT.

"If not, then we will set down with Everton again and see what is reasonable".
