Arsenal are said to be very close to signing Lukaku with reports claiming Everton are ready to accept a bid of £45 million from Arsenal for the player even though they have him valued at £75 million.
The former Chelsea player has scored in every 176 seconds last season in all matches he played for Everton, he was ranked 4th in the top scorers chart in the Premier League last season. Romelu Lukaku is the most talked about striker this summer
Since touching base at Goodison Park, Lukaku has scored 43 times in 104 appearances and has solidified himself as one of the club’s most essential players. His goalscoring record has likewise made him an objective for the greatest clubs in the Premier League, with Arsenal and Chelsea battling it out to get the services of the Striker.
Bits of gossip about talks and agreements being held with Everton by both London clubs emerged recently taking after the finish last season. Though Everton’s principal speculator, Farhad Moshiri, has waded in and now slapped a gigantic £75 million price tag on the striker and, according the Express, he won’t be sold.
This is clearly an obviously tag to scare away possible suitors from drawing nearer the Toffees for their man, Moshiri has openly set up a ‘not available to be purchased’ sign at the entryways of Goodison Park.
Chelsea has as of now, obviously, bowed out of their quest for the Belgian and have rather signed Michy Batshuayi, Lukaku’s Belgian colleague.
That now just leaves Arsenal in the race for the players’ signature. Keen on getting the player for his goal scoring capacities, Arsenal might also be discouraged to get the player for such a price.
While Takuma Asano has completed his transfer to the Gunners, it is a marquee signing of Lukaku’s calibre that fans will want to see as Arsene Wenger build a side capable of challenging for the Premier League title this coming season.
In any case, you’d envision that if a club could raise an offer of even £40 million, the Everton board would need to choose whether this was great business given that they themselves paid £28 million for Lukaku two years back.
A tweet from Jordan Egan reads:
‘Lukaku, Icardi and Lacazette seem to be the best strikers available in this market. All will cost min £40m. I hope Arsenal is interested’.
Can Wenger demonstrate his courage and challenge Everton’s board with an offer of £40 million? Lukaku is one of the strikers heavily linked with the Gunners this summer.
