Everton superstar wanted by Juventus to replace top Arsenal target

Posted by

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku had an incredible season this past year even as the Toffees toiled in the bottom-half of the table. With the team poised to lose plenty of talented players this summer, Lukaku might lead the Goodison Park exodus in a big move to a Champions League giant.

According to Football Italia, Lukaku is being linked with a move to Juventus as the Serie A giants search for a potential replacement for striker Alvaro Morata.

Per the source, Morata is likely to return to Real Madrid in a buy-back by the Champions League winners – leaving a big hole at striker that the 23-year-old Lukaku might fill.

Arsenal are reportedly waiting in the wings to scoop up Morata if he gets sold back to Real Madrid this summer.

Lukaku finished the 2015-16 season as the fourth-leading scorer with 18 goals – a new career high. He finished his Everton campaign with 25 goals in 46 total competitions.
