West Ham United have approached Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku.

The Daily Mail says they have also asked if their London neighbours would consider a permanent deal for the striker, who would fetch around £20m on the open market.

Swansea City have also posted their interest in Lukaku and, alerted to his continuing availability, West Ham have asked to be kept informed of developments.

Chelsea have responded by saying nothing will be decided about Lukaku until a new manager is appointed.
