Juventus are stepping up their interest in Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Juve have attacking concerns after new signing Alvaro Morata broke down in his first training session this week. The former Real Madrid man faces six weeks out.

The Turin giants have also been linked with Lukaku, who has endured a difficult time under Jose Mourinho and could see his first-team opportunities limited by the recent arrival of Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.

The Belgium international is reportedly close to a move to Everton, but the lure of Champions League football may sway his decision should Juventus make a concrete offer, says the Daily Mail.
