The 20-year-old is loaned out to rivals Everton, tallying 10 goals and 6 assists in 24 appearances in the Premier League.
He is set to return to Stamford Bridge when the season ends, but there is doubt on whether Blues boss Jose Mourinho will consider him as part of the latter's long-term plans.
Sources suggest that the Belgium international will not be sold to any club belonging to England's top-flight, while Italian news firm Tutto Mercato reported that Lukaku's agent, Mino Raiola, has held initial talks with the principality club.
Meanwhile, Falcao has been heavily rumoured to make a move to west London, with the "Special One" caught watching him personally in their friendly against Belgium last November.
However, he recently expressed his happiness in playing for Monaco and reiterated that he will not be leaving any time soon.
