Chelsea could use Romelu Lukaku as a bargaining chip for two Everton starlets.

The London Evening Standard says the Blues are looking to sell the striker, who has scored 15 goals on loan at Goodison Park this season.

It would be difficult for Everton to afford the £20million asking price but Chelsea have a long‑standing interest in their England midfielder Ross Barkley and have also been monitoring defender John Stones and that could pave the way for the transfer to take place.

Although Roberto Martinez wants to keep his prize assets, Chelsea would look to capitalise on his desire to buy Lukaku by suggesting a deal which involves one of the young talents going the other way.
