Liverpool are keen on replacing outgoing striker Luis Suarez with Chelsea promising hitman Romelu Lukaku.
The 27-year-old Uruguayan international is days away from becoming an official FC Barcelona player pending medical, and is reported to be worth £75million, despite still serving a four-month ban for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during a World Cup match.

The transfer coffers of Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will be significantly filled as a result of the Suarez move, which gives the former the luxury to spend on key additions that will help the Merseysiders battle through European and domestic duties.
Meanwhile, Lukaku's future at Stamford Bridge has gone from uncertain to nil following Diego Costa's acquisition from Atletico Madrid.
Apparently, Jose Mourinho does not see the 21-year-old Belgian as a long-term fixture to his return stint at Stamford Bridge, in spite of the latter proving that he can compete in the Premier League.
The Andre Villas-Boas signing took advantage of the loan opportunities to increase his stocks, tallying a total of 17 goals and 7 assists during the 2012/13 season with West Brom, as well as 16 goals and 8 assists last season with Everton.
