Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is poised to join Everton in a £25million deal.

The Belgian star smashed 16 goals in 32 games for the Toffees last year in a season-long loan deal at Goodison Park.

Lukaku was due to hook up with the Blues on their pre-season tour but he is now headed to Merseyside to finalise a permanent move to the Toffees.

He is expected to sign a five-year deal with Everton worth around £75,000-a-week.

The 21-year-old posted a picture of himself on Twitter seated on a jet, along with the caption: 'Time to write a new chapter.'

 

Lukaku has made just 15 appearances for Chelsea since his switch from Anderlecht in 2011.
