Liverpool - Everton are seeking to tie down Romelu Lukaku with a long-term contract that would make him the highest-paid player in the club's history.
Reports say that the striker's agent, Mino Raiola, has met with top Everton shareholder Farhad Moshiri.
The contract Lukaku is on at the moment was signed when he joined from Chelsea for a club-record £28 million deal in July 2014, meaning the 23-year old makes about £75 000 per week, while the new deal is tipped to boost that to about £100 000 per week.
While Lukaku is contracted through 2019, a new deal would help Everton manager Ronald Koeman prepare for upcoming seasons.
Lukaku has expressed a desire to play for bigger clubs, saying he would like a chance to experience Champions League football sooner rather than later, while Koeman has suggested the Belgium striker would have to leave to fulfill his potential.
He has scored nine goals in 15 Premier League games this season
However, a new deal would allow Everton to command a higher price if he does eventually depart, with some valuing the former Chelsea striker at £80 million.
Everton next travel to the King Power Stadium on Monday where they will face a struggling Leicester City who will be looking move up the English Premiership standings.
Kick off is at 17:00.
