Italian champions Juventus are targeting Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku 20 has been farmed out on a season's loan by a second successive Stamford Bridge regime this time to Everton.

That has alerted Juve who believe he has been left bitterly disappointed at not being part of the Londoners' squad this season.

Belgian international Lukaku has also switched agents from Christophe Henrotay who oversaw his £18m move from Anderlecht to Chelsea in 2011 to Italian super-agent Mino Raiola.

Raiola has strong connections with the major Serie A clubs took former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to Juventus and has a reputation for getting difficult deals done.

Lukaku spent all summer believing he would be given a chance at Chelsea under re-hired manager Jose Mourinho after then-boss Roberto Di Matteo loaned him to West Brom last August.

But he found himself being borrowed by the Toffees after the Stamford Bridge club failed to ship out fellow striker Demba Ba in the final few days of the summer transfer window.
