Manchester United and Chelsea are circling around a transfer deal for Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.

The Premier League club had been confident the Belgium global would sign a new five-year deal thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.

The 23-year-old's move is set to spark a summer transfer scramble, according to reports in the British media, which say Chelsea and Manchester United are readying bids for the Belgian global.

However, Lukaku wants to keep his options open rather than put pen to paper on the £140,000-a-week terms on offer.

The player's own agent, Mino Raiola, had recently suggested the Premier League's 19-goal joint leading scorer was "99.999 per cent close" to signing.

And it was clear from Wenger's lineup that he wasn't taking any risks against the non-league opponents. It was a football education". "It's an impossible job to keep everybody quiet", Wenger said .

Bayern Munich and Juventus have also been credited with an interest in the marksman, who has more than two years left on his existing deal at Everton.

Everton ace Romelu Lukaku has turned down the new deal on the table from the Toffees, according to the latest report from Sky Sports. The Belgian would command a hefty transfer fee, but it'll be hard to replace a striker who has 20 goals in 29 games already this season.

Lukaku was tipped to leave last summer before the arrival of Ronald Koeman convinced him to remain at the club.

But Lukaku, 23, has knocked back the offer of around £130,000 a week in his determination to get Champions League football.

Lukaku has also talked repeatedly about wanting to play in the Champions League, the prospects of which are likely to elude Everton for the foreseeable future.
