A Premier League scramble is on for Chelsea winger Christian Atsu.

The Daily Mail says Everton have joined Aston Villa and Celtic in asking for Chelsea's Atsu on loan.

If successful it would mean they would have to make any deal for Romelu Lukaku a permanent one as they can't have two players on loan from the same Premier League club.

Atsu, 22, is wanted by a raft of clubs in England, Spain and Germany for a year-long loan deal after spending last season at Vitesse Arnhem in Holland.

West Ham United and Aston Villa are known to be interested in the left winger, with Hamburg and Espanyol also linked.
