Lukaku, currently on loan at Everton, has been the subject of much transfer speculation over the past few weeks, with reports suggesting he is being targeted by both Spurs and the Toffees for a permanent switch.

The Belgian’s agent added fuel to the fire yesterday by claiming he has already held initial talks with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

But Mourinho says Chelsea are unaware of any interest in the young hitman.

‘Have we had any approaches? No,’ Mourinho said. ‘I don’t think it’s the time to speak about it.

‘He’s a Chelsea player, but at the same time he’s an Everton player until the end of the season. We want to respect that. Everton are good club for a loan. Our player is there and our player is playing.

‘He is developing and that’s what you expect. With Lukaku and Everton the loan is working well. Working for Everton, for Lukaku and Chelsea.’

Reports this week have talked about a mass clearout from Stamford Bridge this summer, with each of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o, Demba Ba and Lukaku all said to be up for grabs as Mourinho refreshes his attacking options.

But the Blues boss says Torres at least has a future at the club, despite his negative comments towards the Spaniard earlier this week.
