Romelu Lukaku agent says striker is attracting interest from Europes top clubs

by

Everton look set for a summer battle to hang on to top scorer Romelu Lukaku after the striker's agent talked up interest from a number of Europe's leading clubs

The 22-year-old has scored 25 goals this season despite the club's disappointing campaign and that has alerted a number of suitors, according to the Belgium international's representative Mino Raiola.

"Lukaku? Of course, Juventus as a solution could go well," Raiola is reported to have told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"But keep an eye on PSG and Real Madrid too for the Everton striker."

At the weekend Lukaku, while on international duty, spoke of his desire to play among Europe's elite.

"I'm 23 next summer and it would be nice to play in the Champions League next season," he said.

Where next for Lukaku?

by

Romelu Lukaku cast doubts regarding his future at Everton by publicly stating he wants Champions League football.

Despite scoring 18 league goals this season, LukakuÂ’s side have struggled to gain momentum and lie in 12th place in the Premier League; 12 points off fourth-placed Manchester City.

Everton’s most expensive signing has not ruled out a move in the summer after the best season of his career so far
Even his father has stated that at least six European teams are interested in his son
We assess the Belgian’s options should he secure a move away from Goodison Park…

Manchester United

The Red Devils have identified Lukaku as the man to turn their fortunes around next season
With Louis van Gaal set to leave in the summer, Everton’s £28m signing would be the perfect addition for an incoming manager
However, United would have to qualify for the Champions League by securing a top-four finish if they are to have any hopes of landing the former Anderlecht forward.

His father believes that United would be the right club for his son to take the next step.
He described United as a team ‘under construction with no real focus’
Should United manage to finish in the top four, they will be a front-runner for his signature.

United have struggled to find a system to suit their forwards meaning they have struggled to score goals
Anthony Martial has been forced out wide this season and LVG has been forced to use youngsters such as Marcus Rashford; who has made a huge impact after getting his chance in the first-team
However, if Jose Mourinho is instated as manager, problems could arise
It was Mourinho who allowed Lukaku to leave Chelsea for Merseyside but it could give Lukaku even more incentive to prove the Portuguese wrong

Chelsea

Surprisingly, Chelsea have joined the race for the striker despite allowing him to leave just two- years-ago
Lukaku was deemed surplus to requirements after being loaned out to both West Brom and Everton; where he impressed enough to earn his big money transfer

Italian manager Antonio Conte is widely expected to take over from interim manager Gus Hiddink at the end of the season and believes Lukaku would be the perfect man for his side
Conte has reportedly informed that technical director Michael Emenalo that he wants to bring Lukaku back to the club in the summer

There are many complications to a deal bringing the forward back to Stamford Bridge
Firstly, it is highly unlikely that Lukaku would want to return the club that did not think he was good enough to represent the Blues
Also, Chelsea have endured a dismal campaign and look certain to miss out on European football meaning other teams will have a competitive advantage
Everton will also look for a huge transfer fee if they are to allow their star man to return to his former employers

Bayern Munich

The other club Roger Lukaku labelled as ‘perfect’ for his son was Bayern Munich
Pep Guardiola’s side have been unstoppable in the Bundesliga over the last few seasons and would guarantee Champions League football and trophies in Germany

Rumours persist over the future of current striker Robert Lewandowski who has refused to rule out a move to Real Madrid in the future due to his ambitions to play in Spain
If the Pole decides to leave, Bayern believe that Lukaku is the perfect replacement
With 25 goals in all competitions, Lukaku would replace the goals that Lewandowski has provided

With Carlo Ancelotti arriving at the end of the season, signing Lukaku would be the perfect present for the Italian
Everton will struggle to keep the Belgian at the club should the German giants come calling
Technical director Michael Reschke was sent to scout the forward earlier in the season meaning a move could be in the offing

Real Madrid

Depending on whether Madrid makes a move for Lewandowski, Lukaku could be targeted to become Florentino Perez’s next ‘Galactico’
The Real Madrid president believes that his side needs a big money signing to reinvigorate his squad after losing serious ground to Barcelona in La Liga

Zinedine Zidane has included TottenhamÂ’s Harry Kane and the Everton striker as the perfect strikers to bolster their frontline next season alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale
Los Blancos reportedly tried to sign the 22-year-old back in 2012 but would face stiff competition meaning alternatives could be considered

Reports suggest that Madrid are lining up a £60m move the Belgium international to bring the powerful striker to the Bernabeu
The Spanish side are also keeping tabs on Alvaro Morata and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if a move for the Everton forward fails to materialise

Juventus

Italian giants Juventus have long been admirers of the striker, who turned down a move to Italy in order to join Everton who he described at the time as the ‘perfect’ club for him
However, times have changed and Lukaku is ready to make the next step in his career

Juventus have dominated Serie A in recent seasons but were narrowly edged out in their Champions League tie against Bayern Munich
Massimiliano Allegri’s side would no doubt match Lukaku’s ambitions of playing at the highest level of football
The Italians are expected to complete the permanent signing of Juan Cuadrado but doubts remain over MorataÂ’s future at the club

Despite the exceptional form of Paulo Dybala, Juve fans have grown frustrated with Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic
Lukaku has been linked up as the perfect man to lead the line next season
The striker admitted that he thought about moving to Juventus before making the switch to Everton and the time could now be right to don the black and white shirt

Other possible destinations

After Lukaku’s remarks about playing in Europe, both Borussia Dortmund who face the prospect of losing Aubameyang in the summer and Paris St Germain have shown an interest with Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to leave the club
Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs on the forward as well as looking to bring former striker, Diego Costa, back to the club

Everton 0-2 Arsenal- Match Report

by

Arsenal breathe life into title hopes with Everton winArsenal ended a difficult week with a first league victory in a month after a 2-0 win at Everton kept their faint title hopes alive.After exiting the FA Cup and Champions League within the space of four days Danny Welbeck and 19-year-old Alex Iwobi, with his first for the club, scored in the opening 45 minutes at Goodison Park to ensure the Gunners still retain some interest in the pursuit of leaders Leicester.Having been humbled by Watford and then Barcelona, manager Arsene Wenger, who on Friday defiantly insisted they were still in the title race, would have wanted to see a response.Fortunately for the Gunners they found themselves faced by the Everton which had won just seven league matches at home in the last 12 months and not the one who dumped Chelsea out of the FA Cup last weekend.Without Gareth Barry, serving a suspension for his sending off a week ago, Arsenal were allowed to dominate the 40 yards between centre-circle and penalty area with very little in the way of opposition.It gave the visitors the space to play their little triangles and that led to the breakthrough after just seven minutes, with a 12-pass move culminating in Alexis Sanchez exchanging possession with Mesut Ozil before sliding a through-ball to Welbeck, who perfectly timed his run in behind the defence leaving him with the simple task of beating goalkeeper Joel Robles.Welbeck had already hit the post, just after Seamus Coleman had done the same at the other end, in a manic 60 seconds just two minutes in.Sanchez admirably stayed on his feet when the alternative would surely have led to a penalty after both Muhamed Besic and Ramiro Funes Mori had a nibble at him as Everton's ineffectiveness extended to tackles inside their own area but passivity in midfield continued to be the biggest problem and it cost them just before the break.Full-back Hector Bellerin launched a pass down the right channel to completely expose Funes Mori in a two-on-one situation and while Iwobi may not yet possess all the skills of his mercurial uncle Jay-Jay Okocha but he displayed a similar coolness in the final third, ignoring Ozil on his own in the middle to confidently slot past Robles.The half-time entertainment was from soul band The Drifters, which could be construed as a less-than-subtle metaphor for Everton's season which now hinges on an FA Cup semi-final in five weeks' time.It will be a long time to tread water for Martinez, whose status among fans has swung one way then the other in the last couple of weeks with cup victories and league defeats but is definitely on an ever-decreasing downward spiral.Everton have conceded 28 goals in 15 home, the worst record in the Premier League, and the longer that continues the more precarious his position becomes.The second half brought a slight improvement from the hosts but Arsenal were more than comfortable in containment mode to secure their first clean sheet in five league games

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku sees Champions League football as the next step

by

Romelu Lukaku's stellar season has created stories about his future and the Everton man has admitted to thinking about the Champions League.

The 22-year-old Belgium striker has scored 25 goals so far this season and is looking like becoming the first Toffee to score 30 in a campaign since Gary Lineker in 1986.

But despite his continued brilliance, Everton remain mid-table, with an FA Cup semi-final – brought about by Lukaku's demolition of Chelsea – keeping their season alive.

Reports have suggested Lukaku could move on from Goodison this summer and while he says he is not interested in a "fight" with the club about his future, he admits to thinking about where he could one day play.

Speaking to a number of national newspapers, he said: "That's looking far ahead and I don't want to do that
I'm 23 this summer
I have been playing [professionally] since I was 16 and never had a taste of the Champions League
It is going to be seven years
You think about it – if it is going to happen? Champions League football is really the next step.

"If something happens, it will be for the good of the club
I don't want to leave in a fight, if it happens
I won't say this or that, it is going to be good for me personally and for the club."

Boss Roberto Martinez invested in Lukaku when it was clear Chelsea did not see a future for him and, as such, the striker is grateful for the faith shown in him.

"They were the ones who believed in me at a time when nobody believed in me and they gave me a platform to perform," he added.

"I have tried to repay them by doing good performances, but I have an agent who deals with the interest
I do not want to be bothered with it
I just want to play my football.

"I have an open relationship with the manager
I will be honest enough with him to say what I think
But we have 10 more games to go and we are not at that point yet."

Roberto Martinez confident Everton will cope with loss of Gareth Barry

by

Roberto Martinez admits Everton will miss Gareth Barry during his suspension but is optimistic his absence will not be felt too keenly.

The combative midfielder was sent off for the second time this season late on in Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final victory over Chelsea.

Barry was booked for his involvement in the fracas that saw Diego Costa receive a second yellow card and then followed suit three minutes later after fouling Cesc Fabregas.

Because it was the 35-year-old's second red of the campaign he must serve a two-match ban, ruling him out of the high-profile Premier League clashes with Arsenal and Manchester United.

Toffees boss Martinez told evertontv: "We are quite strong in every department – that's what's pleasing
We never look to have excuses for having players not available
We'll never go down that route.

"The squad is ready and players have been working really hard
It's going to be great to see what a new partnership can bring to the side

"But, clearly, Gareth Barry has been an incredible influence in the last three seasons, none more so than in this campaign, where he has been involved in every Premier League game.

"He is going to be missed but the challenge we face is can we perform in a really positive way, even when Gareth is not on the pitch? We have to rise to that."

Everton will hope to overcome Barry's absence and take their cup form into the league, where they have stuttered, particularly at home, winning just four matches all season at Goodison Park.

Phil Jagielka- Players must take reponsibility for inconsistent form

by

Everton captain Phil Jagielka has defended manager Roberto Martinez by admitting players cannot only take credit for good performances but must shoulder a fair share of blame for poor ones too

Toffees fans are on a high after booking a first trip to Wembley in four years, where they will face Manchester United or West Ham in the FA Cup semi-final after beating Chelsea at the weekend.

But in the preceding seven days the number of dissenters calling for Martinez to be replaced grew to its highest level after a late collapse from 2-0 up against West Ham saw them lose 3-2 in the Premier League, with Kevin Mirallas sent off

Reports also began emerge claiming the players were losing faith in Martinez's open approach to football and wanted to be more pragmatic at times.

There were obviously no such criticisms following the win over Chelsea, in which striker Romelu Lukaku, Aaron Lennon and Jagielka all starred and after which chairman Bill Kenwright spoke out publicly in support of his manager.

But Jagielka knows it will only take another poor display – with Arsenal the visitors this weekend – for the tide to turn against Martinez again.

"In that position you are judged on how you affect the game and unfortunately, with the way criticisms went and what happened last week, conceding three goals in the last 12 minutes, obviously people were quick to forget we were down to 10 men for the majority of the game," said the Everton captain.

"Obviously the manager has to take some responsibility because that's his role but to the same extent, we're the people out on the pitch and we have to perform.

"You can't throw all the blame the manager's way, there has to be a pretty even split between him and the players.

"I understand that people will do that, because that's the way football is."

Everton's inconsistencies, having won just four Premier League matches at home this season and just eight in the last 12 months, have undoubtedly affected the atmosphere at Goodison.

However, there was no issue on Saturday with the old ground rocking in the closing stages.

There could have been no better introduction for new majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, attending his first match since acquiring a 49.9 percent stake in the club.

"He picked the perfect game to come to!" added Jagielka.

"That's what we're always about, it's what I've always said, but it's difficult to make that sort of incredible atmosphere we had when the performances have been so inconsistent and the results haven't been what we expect.

"We certainly haven't been sat in the dressing room blaming anyone, that's for certain.

"We know we need to perform for the fans to make it a fortress, and we know that's not been the case for the majority of the season.

"It's the way it's gone for us, we've had disappointments and reacted well to them
We did that, and being in the quarter-final of the cup made it that much more special

"The fans played a big part
We played well, kept it going and showed we have something."

Lukaku looking forward to Wembley trip

by

Romelu Lukaku is looking forward to a Wembley appearance in the FA Cup semi-final with Everton.

The Belgium international scored both goals, the first a brilliant, dribbling effort past four opponents, late on in the 2-0 victory over Chelsea which had the old stadium bouncing.

Lukaku has played just 18 minutes at the national stadium as a substitute for Belgium in a 1-0 defeat in 2012 but going there with his club will mean much more to him as Everton chase their first trophy since 1995.

"It was the best night I have had in the stadium since I arrived at the club," he told evertontv.

"I am happy to go to Wembley. I am happy for the team, for the club, as it is something we all wanted.

"We have come close before so we are now 180 minutes away from glory.

"There is a lot of belief. We know we are a good team and if we have a good day it is tough to beat us.

"It is up to us to be concentrated and do the job.

"It (Wembley) is different for Belgium. It was a nice experience but now playing with my team-mates at Wembley, the biggest venue for football, is going to be good."

Striker Romelu Lukaku is looking forward to a Wembley appearance in the FA Cup semi-final after enjoying the best night of his Everton career at Goodison Park

The Belgium international scored both goals, the first a brilliant, dribbling effort past four opponents, late on in the 2-0 victory over Chelsea which had the old stadium bouncing.

Lukaku has played just 18 minutes at the national stadium as a substitute for Belgium in a 1-0 defeat in 2012 but going there with his club will mean much more to him as Everton chase their first trophy since 1995.

"It was the best night I have had in the stadium since I arrived at the club," he told evertontv.

"I am happy to go to Wembley
I am happy for the team, for the club, as it is something we all wanted.

"We have come close before so we are now 180 minutes away from glory.

"There is a lot of belief
We know we are a good team and if we have a good day it is tough to beat us.

"It is up to us to be concentrated and do the job.

"It (Wembley) is different for Belgium
It was a nice experience but now playing with my team-mates at Wembley, the biggest venue for football, is going to be good."

Lukaku became the first Everton player since Gary Lineker 30 years ago to score 25 in a season after his magnificent double lit up a match which had failed to spark into life for 78 minutes.

Collecting a pass on the left wing he set off on a run which left Cesar Azpilicueta, Jon Obi Mikel, Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill mesmerised before firing past international team-mate Thibaut Courtois.

His second five minutes later was less spectacular but just as clinical as he beat Courtois from the other side of the penalty area with his right-foot this time.

That goal finished off Chelsea but there was still time for Diego Costa to be sent off for a second yellow card after clashing with Gareth Barry and appearing to attempt to bite his opponent before the Everton midfielder also saw red for a foul on Cesc Fabregas which will see him miss league matches against Arsenal and Manchester United.

"Romelu's goal is going to be one of the best goals scored in the FA Cup and well worth it to take us to Wembley, a great memory for every Evertonian," said manager Roberto Martinez, who met new majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as he attended his first match in an official capacity.

"A newly-born Evertonian," was how the manager described the Iranian billionaire.

"He brings an incredible financial muscle and wants to get us back to where we were in the 1980s and win trophies.

"We are so much looking forward to the new era
Now we have got a completely different future
Going to Wembley is part of every Evertonian."

For Chelsea's interim boss Guus Hiddink, who suffered his first domestic defeat since taking over from the sacked Jose Mourinho in mid-December to follow a Champions League exit in midweek, there is now little to look forward to.

"They (the players) like to win, most of them are used to winning," he said.

"Until December it was very bad and my first task was to get out of the relegation zone as soon as possible, which we surprisingly did in a few weeks from 16th to 10th.

"But it is difficult to achieve the Champions League places and maintain two roads to achieve success.

"Now they are gone
That is a pity but I think a club like Chelsea you must play with responsibility.

"We have to go on with pride for the club."

Romelu Lukaku ends Chelseas trophy hopes as Diego Costa sees red

by

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku produced two moments of magic to knock his former club Chelsea out of the FA Cup

The Belgium international beat the combined defensive might of Cesar Azpilicueta, Jon Obi Mikel, Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill to score a brilliant individual opening goal.

He then finished off the visitors with a clinical right-footed strike to give his side their first visit to Wembley since the 2012 semi-final, which they lost to near-neighbours Liverpool.

Lukaku was deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge by Jose Mourinho but since moving to Everton in a £28million deal he has scored 63 goals in 118 appearances and has 25 this season alone – the first player to achieve that feat for Everton since Gary Lineker in 1985-86.

Majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, attending his first match since acquiring an £85million 49.9 percent stake in the club, has pledged to provide the cash to keep their star players and he would be well advised to make the big striker an offer he cannot refuse as soon as possible.

Almost single-handedly Lukaku inflicted Guus Hiddink's first domestic victory since taking over in mid-December and to compound matters for the Dutch caretaker boss, striker Diego Costa was sent off late on after a clash with Gareth Barry which may invite further scrutiny.

The Spain international pushed his face into Barry's neck, seemingly intent on biting him, but appeared to withdraw at the last moment.

The players then embraced but Costa was still shown a red card – and Barry followed moments later for a second booking

While there had been no indication in the preceding 77 minutes of the brilliance which Lukaku produced, the late flurry of yellow and red cards was entirely predictable.

There were more fouls than shots in a scrappy, over-physical first half which surprisingly saw only two bookings.

It was absolutely no surprise Costa was one, cautioned for jumping into Barry in retribution for the midfielder's foul on him earlier which the Chelsea striker felt should have warranted a yellow card.

Pedro's heavy touch took the ball out of play after he skipped past Robles but it was not until the 44th minute there was a save of any note as Joel Robles tipped over Willian's free-kick.

Costa came closest to breaking the deadlock just before the hour but having skipped past Ramiro Funes Mori and Robles, his shot from the acutest of angles rolled along the goal line and past the far post.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois denied compatriot Lukaku after Cleverley's incisive through-ball but was powerless to deny him when he stepped up a gear 12 minutes from time.

When he picked up the ball wide on the left there appeared little danger but Lukaku set off with such drive and determination Chelsea's defenders just could not handle him
Having weaved his way past four players, he confidently stroked home.

His second, from the other side of the penalty area, was less spectacular but equally clinical.

Chelsea knew the game was up but Costa's decision to clash with Barry was patently ridiculous, considering what had gone before.

His red card was swiftly followed by another after Barry's foul on Cesc Fabregas, but it could not dampen Everton's celebrations as Chelsea's last hope of silverware went the same way as Costa.
