Everton want to sign Chelsea starlet Tammy Abraham and would be prepared to include the youngster in a deal that could see Romelu Lukaku to return to Stamford Bridge, according to reports.

Daily Mail are reporting that Everton are interested in signing Abraham in the summer transfer window after his impressive loan spell at Championship side Bristol City over the past season.

The 19-year-old scored 26 goals in 48 games in all competitions during a season-long loan at Bristol to attract interest from Chelsea’s title rivals Arsenal at the end of the campaign.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move to sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer despite having sold the Belgium international to Everton in a £27m deal in 2013.

And the above article states that Everton want to use Chelsea’s interest in Lukaku as leverage in a deal to sign Abraham ahead of Arsenal in the summer.
