Everton target Lukaku alternative

Everton are preparing a £10.5million bid for QPR striker Loic Remy, reports the Irish Independent.

The French forward is currently on loan at Newcastle United, where he has scored 13 league goals. The striker is expected to receive multiple offers this summer, especially if QPR fail to get promotion back to the Premier League.

The Toffees want to sign Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal from Chelsea, have been told to pay £20million for the Belgian, twice as much as they are going to bid for Remy. Chelsea are preparing a £40million move for Diego Costa, but are reluctant to lower there valuation of Lukaku, who has impressed on loan for both Everton and West Brom.

Remy is valued lower than Lukaku because the Frenchman has a release clause, which Newcastle and Tottenham have been rumoured to be interested in activating, as well as Roberto Martinez’s side. The Frenchman has also been linked with Arsenal in past transfer windows.

Martinez is eager to make multiple signings this summer, with Everton fans anticipating European football next season. Everton are currently sitting in an Europa League space, and are just 4 points behind 4th place Arsenal, with a place in next year’s Champions League not an impossibility for the Toffees. The Spaniard has been linked with moves for Gareth Barry on a permanent deal, and an attempt to bring Jack Rodwell back to Goodison Park.
