Everton star joins illustrious club after hitting milestone

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has moved into an elite group of strikers following his goal in the win over Aston Villa, report the Metro.

The 21-year old became only the fifth player under the age of 23 to reach the 50 Premier League goals milestone this afternoon as the Toffees romped to a 4-0 win over basement side Aston Villa.

The Belgian is now in his third season on Merseyside, after making his loan switch permanent in 2014 when the Goodison Park outfit shelled out a club record £28m for his services.

He initially arrived on these shores with Chelsea, though found first team outings hard to come by at Stamford Bridge and was sold when Jose Mourinho returned to West London.

Eyebrows were initially raised when the Toffees shelled out such a large fee to sign him, though he is now establishing himself as a key player.

The former Anderlecht man joins an illustrious club consisting of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney.
