Romelu Lukaku, still at Everton, is ready to return to the pitch.

On Saturday, Lukaku was named to Everton’s bench for the Toffees’ Premier League fixture at West Bromwich Albion, as the Belgian forward is “fit again” after he was forced to miss a 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur one week ago because of injury.

It was reported in early August that Chelsea was prepared to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge for as much as £70 million, a figure that would apparently mark a club-record transfer fee by surpassing the £50 million the Blues paid for Fernando Torres in 2011.

However, Lukaku is still at Goodison Park entering the season’s second matchday.
