Sleeping giants to awaken with audacious swoop for £65m Everton star

According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, AC Milan want to make Everton striker Romelu Lukaku their marquee signing for the summer transfer window.

The nine-time European title winners haven’t qualified for the Champions League in three years and finished last season in seventh place in Serie A.

But a new group of Chinese investors are on the verge of taking over at the San Siro and plan to put in place an £81million budget for each of the next three summer windows.

And in regards to the coming one, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has emerged as a marquee target for the sleeping giants.

The Belgium international claimed a career-best 25 goals across all competitions last season, including 18 strikes in the Premier League, and bagged a brace against Ireland during the Euro 2016 group stages.

Everton reportedly value their 6 foot 3 frontman at a whopping £65million but as mentioned above, that figure won’t be outside AC Milan’s financial reach once their takeover is completed.
