Romelu Lukaku’s incredible goalscoring statistics at Everton

Quick Reads

Romelu Lukaku is back in the spotlight amid reports he could leave Everton in the summer after rejecting the offer of a new contract at Goodison Park.

Should Everton decide they are left with no choice but to cash in, there is likely to be no shortage of offers for a player that has developed into one of the deadliest strikers in the Premier League while at the club.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman recently described him as “one of the best strikers in the world,” adding: “I have never seen a striker so clinical with his finishing.”

Considering the Dutchman played alongside Marco van Basten, that is some accolade for the 23-year-old to receive.
