Tottenham and Everton have been dealt a transfer blow after Romelu Lukaku’s agent, Oscar Darmiani Jr, revealed that Chelsea don’t want to loan the Belgian out and a contract extension appears on the cards.
The Belgian spent last season on loan at the Toffees, after having a successful time at West Brom the year before.
However, Lukaku has struggled at the World Cup, leading to suggestions that the Blues may allow him to leave.
But Darmiani Jr denied these claims saying: “Chelsea doesn’t want to loan him out.
“He has two years left on his contract and we would normally look at extending it shortly.
“Did I see him after the match against Russia? Yeah, he was pretty quiet but he is a player who doesn’t have anything to prove.
“Of course, the World Cup is the World Cup. I’m sure he’ll bounce back in the next game.”
