Everton would surely love to have prime Romelu Lukaku back

Everton enjoyed what seemed like a fine transfer window in the summer of 2017 as they spent huge amounts of money revamping their entire squad.

Whilst Jordan Pickford is still around as their number one, the rest of those transfers have either left or are sitting on the bench at Goodison Park.

It seemed like the Toffees had reinvested the money gained from the £75m sale of Romelu Lukaku, but little did they know just how much they would miss him.

Would you take Lukaku back at Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has shown signs that he might be able to take the mantle at times, with his 16-goal haul during the 2020/21 season, but injuries have left him unable to repeat the feat.

If they were to have the hulking Belgian back now in his prime, they would surely be an unstoppable force when combined with the solid defence Frank Lampard has put in place.

With James Tarkowski and Conor Coady at the back, Everton currently boast the second-best defence in the league so far this season.

If the Lukaku from the 2016/17 season could be taken now, with his sensational 25 Premier League goals that season, it would give Lampard the focal point for his creative outlets like Anthony Gordon and Demarai Gray to thrive off.

In fact, Dwight McNeil might benefit the most, as he would finally have a target man to aim his crosses at. He ranked sixth for successful crosses last season, with 42.

This season too marks a flurry of chances created per 90 by a few members of the squad, all of which would likely be dispatched for fun by the 29-year-old who was so clinical under Ronald Koeman.

Signed in 2014 by Roberto Martinez for what turned out to be a steal, they paid just £28m for his services.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

Described as “monstrous” and a “world-class elite striker”, with this summer’s fine additions both in midfield and at the back, it seems like a striker of this ilk would truly be the final piece of the puzzle for Everton now.

Neal Maupay has started life well at Goodison Park, but their all-time Premier League top scorer would take them to another level with the way he used to bully defenders.

Boasting incredible strength and blistering speed, to have him under Lampard’s current system would be an absolute dream.
