As Standard Sport revealed yesterday, Chelsea are still locked in negotiations with Everton over their former striker but are refusing to meet the Merseyside club's £75m asking price.

This paper first revealed in April that the Belgium international wanted to return to Stamford Bridge despite a disappointing first spell at the club, where he started just one League game between 2011-14.

Chelsea are prepared to pay up to £67m for the 23-year-old, who they sold to Everton for £28m just two years ago.
