Revealed: Small majority of Everton fans want club to land Lukaku’s brother

Everton have been relatively slow to get going in the transfer market, but they have been linked to numerous players.

One area of the pitch that needs some attention is the left-back role, which has belonged to Leighton Baines for some time.

At the age of 33, though, the former Wigan Athletic player is nearing the latter stages of his career.

During his injury absence last season, right-footed Cuco Martina stepped in for cover, which was frustrating for many of the fans.

The likes of Luke Shaw and Keiran Tierney have been linked with moves to Goodison Park, but no deals have been struck as yet.

Recently, The Mirror reported that the Merseyside outfit have lodged a £22m bid for Barcelona defender Lucas Digne.

However, there is a cheaper alternative at Lazio in the form of Jordan Lukaku, who is the brother of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The 23-year-old still has room to learn, but he has plenty of pace and the physicality to cope with the demands of the Premier League, and he could form a long-term partnership with new boy Richarlison on the left-hand side.

We asked you if the Belgian was the right man to replace Baines, and the majority believe that he is a good option, but there is a big chunk who are not as keen.
