Tottenham prepare offer for Chelsea striker Lukaku

Tottenham intend to bid for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku this summer. Lukaku, currently on-loan at Everton, is set to be sold by Chelsea as manager Jose Mourinho seeks to make a new striker signing within Financial Fair Play rules.

The Telegraph says Spurs were among a host of clubs interested in Lukaku last summer and chairman Daniel Levy made a cheeky offer to swap Emmanuel Adebayor for the 20-year-old.

Tottenham will make a more serious bid for Lukaku this year and hope to convince Chelsea to allow the player to stay in the Premier League.

Chelsea will demand big money for Lukaku, who they signed for £17?million from Anderlecht in 2011, but Spurs would comfortably be able to offer the player an increase to his £40,000-a-week wages.
