Everton chasing Ba loan deal
Everton have held talks with Chelsea over signing striker Demba Ba on a loan deal, according to the Daily Mail.
Manager Roberto Martinez took Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea last season after initially attempting to bring Ba to Goodison Park.
Lukaku's future at Chelsea continues to remain uncertain after the Belgium international claimed no one from the club has spoken to him since September.
The Daily Mail says that Everton have asked Chelsea whether they can have Lukaku for another season but are waiting to see if there are any developments in the interest from Atletico Madrid for the striker.
Ba is currently on £80,000 a week but the Daily Mail reports that Everton and Chelsea are still "some distance apart from his personal terms".
Everton have also made an enquiry about Adama Traore at Barcelona having had success with landing Gerard Deulofeu last season.
