Lining up replacements
Everton have made a ‘concrete proposal’ to Chelsea for striker Bertrand Traore as the club look to prepare for life without Romelu Lukaku.
The Merseysiders are likely to lose the Belgian this summer with Chelsea seemingly leading the race to sign the player.
Now, Ronald Koeman’s side could well move for one of the Londoners players after Lukaku leaves.
Traore, who spent last season on loan at Ajax, could be available this summer and the club are reportedly asking around €20m for his signature.
That has lead to clubs like Everton, West Ham, Lille and Schalke to go for the player.
With that in mind, it could be likely that the player leaves Chelsea this summer and Everton want to adequately replace their talisman Lukaku.
They would also have no shortage of funds after a possible sale of the Belgian.
Would love Bertrand Traore at Everton me after seeing how good he was in the Europa League, very technical and cause a lot of problems

Huge Lukaku deal
The possible details of Romelu Lukaku’s move to Chelsea have reportedly been revealed.
The Belgian could be set for a move upwards of £70m but his wage packet will surprise you.
