The reported Chelsea target is all smiles with former Blues man Charly Musonda

Romelu Lukaku was all smiles with his former Chelsea team-mate Charly Musonda amid continuing reports linking the striker with a return to west London.

The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge just three years after Lukaku moved to Everton in a deal from the Blues after failing to secure a regular place under then manager Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has already signed one Belgium striker this summer after completing a £34m deal for Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi last month.

And Lukaku was catching up with former Blues man Musonda on Saturday as Everton lost to Real Betis on penalties in a pre-season friendly in Germany.

Chusonda spent three years as a Chelsea youth player before moving to Real Betis on loan earlier this year.

Lukaku scored 17 times in 38 Premier League games for the Merseyside outfit last season.

Chelsea lost 3-2 to Champions League holders Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly in United States at the weekend.
