Five Romelu Lukaku replacements for Everton
According to Sky Sports News reporter Vinny O’Connor, via the Daily Express, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is still keen to leave the club despite their impressive early transfer business.
The Toffees signed Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Ajax captain Davy Klaassen on Thursday, with forwards Sandro Ramirez and M’Baye Niang rumoured to be joining them at Goodison Park.
However, O’Connor told Sky Sports: “I think there is an expectation here that certainly Romelu Lukaku is still destined to leave Everton Football Club.”
It remains to be seen what fee it will take to prise the prolific 24-year-old away from Goodison Park considering he scored 25 Premier League goals last season and has two years left on his contract, but the Merseyside outfit certainly aren’t willing to sell him on the cheap.
If manager Ronald Koeman has accepted that the Belgium international will leave if an interested club submits an acceptable offer, then the Dutchman will already be looking for suitable replacements for what will be big boots to fill.
