Few days ago highly rated Italian journalist broke the news that Arsenal and the agents of Everton and Belgium star Romelu Lukaku have reached an agreement on personal terms for the player to move to Arsenal. But today, in a news that will certainly be sad news for Arsenal fans, Everton and Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku could remain at Goodison park club Everton next season, despite earlier stating that wants to leave the club.
The Gunners has once again suffered another setback in their pursuit for a top striker this summer. The 23-year-old striker has been linked with a move to Arsenal all summer.
The big Belgian has strongly stated his willingness to find a new challenge with a club that will give him the opportunity to play Champions League football next season, fuelling speculations he may join Arsenal.
However, Lukaku seems to have reversed his intention, and has decided to remain at the Merseyside outfit, according to The Mirror.
The Mirror also report that the player is convinced with the potential of coach Ronald Koeman, and feels he is the perfect tactician to thake Everton football club to the promise land under the Farhad Moshiri era.
Everton still have a lot of work to do to keep hold of England international defender John Stones, who is hell bent for a switch to Manchester City this summer transfer window. The Merseyside club is likely to hand the former Chelsea man a five-year contract worth £100,000-a-week.
