A bizarre transfer merry-go-round.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku dropped strong hints last week that he was ready to quit the Merseyside club just one season after his £28million summer move from Chelsea.

Indeed, he even suggested he would be willing to return to his former side at Stamford Bridge, but according to the Mail, this is not a viable option.

Instead, Chelsea are hot on the pursuit West Ham's Enner Valencia after missing out on the Ecuadorian forward in January.

Should Mourinho get his man, this could then set off a chain reaction whereby West Ham would then have the funds to bring Lukaku themselves, likely to set them back around £30m and £60,000 per week in wages.
