Five Lukaku replacements should striker leave Everton this summer
Everton fans will be crossing their fingers that the above won’t be the case come the end of the season.
Romelu Lukaku has been the Toffees’ standout player over the past four seasons, netting 16 times during his debut campaign at Goodison Park – when he was on loan from Premier League leaders Chelsea – and his form earned him a permanent move come the summer.
That move and the big £28m price tag certainly did no harm to his form, as over the next two seasons, the Belgian striker scored 20 then 25 goals as he again showed the Premier League and indeed the world his abilities.
