Conte wants Lukaku back at Chelsea

Incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will seek to lure former player and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Belgian international struggled to get sufficient first-team action under Jose Mourinho and was eventually shipped out to the Toffees on a permanent basis in 2014

Lukaku has since then developed into a top-class footballer and this has caught the eye of top European clubs.

The Sun reports that Conte has urged club owner Roman Abramovich to consider re-signing Lukaku, who has been a thorn in the defence of several Premier League clubs this season.

It is added that Abramovich has admitted his mistake at letting go of a player of such a high calibre.

Lukaku has netted 25 goals in all competitions for Everton this campaign.
