Everton may sit at just 12th on the Premier League table, but that isn’t due to a lack of effort from star striker Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian superstar currently ranks third in the league with 18 goals and at 22 years of age has plenty of room for growth into a world star. That now presents a major problem for the Toffees, who will have to convince Lukaku to stay and not join one of the many major clubs vying for his contract this summer.
According to the Mirror, the list of contenders for Lukaku’s services now includes Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. Per the source, the Belgian star is rated at over £50 million.
Lukaku has been eager to bring his talents to the Champions League, where he has not appeared since his teenage days at Anderlecht.
He has 60 league goals and 78 total goals since the 2012-13 season when he played for West Bromwich Albion.
PSG’s emergence comes after Zlatan Ibrahimovic pledged that this would be his last season with the club (unless the Eiffel Tower is replaced with a statue of him that is).
