The move comes following Lukaku’s comments after Belgium crashed out of Euro 2016 in a shock 3-1 defeat to Wales, in which the striker claimed he ‘needed to talk to the club’ when questioned about his future on merseyside.
The once Chelsea man also agitated many Toffees fans by asserting that he needs to play Champions League football in order to continue his career.
Lukaku’s former club are the front-runners in securing his signature this summer having already stated their interest in signing the man they bought to the Premier League from Anderlecht back in 2011 for a fee of £17 million, only to sell him on to Everton in 2014 for a tidy £11 million profit.
