Lukaku has been in prolific form in the last two seasons, scoring 25 and 26 goals respectively, with the Belgian five short of 150 career club goals.

It is thought the deal is separate to the ongoing discussions between the two clubs for Wayne Rooney, who is set for a sensational return to his former club, 13 years after leaving Goodison Park for Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford has met with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, with talks expected to last a few more days.
