A number of Everton fans have explained their reasons for wanting Romelu Lukaku back at the club ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
Everton have not actually been credited with an interest in the Belgium international.
However, a number of their supporters have been on social media commenting on a possible swoop for the 26-year-old in this summer’s transfer window.
The former Anderlecht youngster did not enjoy the best of seasons last term.
However, he managed 87 goals in 166 appearances for Everton between 2013 and 2017, which is very impressive indeed.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Merseyside club’s fans can be seen below:
Because 26 is still young enough to recapture at least some of your former glory. With a bit of serious graft he could get back into decent shape. If he was the wrong side of 30 I’d be agreeing with the people who are writing him off as a has-been

Probably because he’s one of the best players to have ever played for Everton. One bad season doesn’t define a player.??♂️

46 goals in 96 games when hes not at his best, better than anyone we have at the club atm.

Still a 1-in-2 scorer even when he’s out of shape.

Because he’s the best striker we’ve had in recent memory. Fact.

A motivated fit Lukaku is one of Europe’s best strikers. He’s out of shape & not comfortable being a squad player & not being the big fish like he was for us. The Lukaku that left us was phenomenal, that’s the one we’d want back & he’d be perfect for what Silva wants.

Rather have him than Tosun or DCL no question
