Three Replacements For Romelu Lukaku Who Everton Can Consider
While clouds of uncertainty gathering over the Goodison park about the future of Romelu Lukaku, who has rejected a contract offer from Everton, it is possible that Ronald Koeman would have already started his hunt to find a suitable replacement. Considering the stellar show Lukaku put up during the 2016/2017 campaign, it’s quite a difficult task to find a quality replacement worth every penny, considering the limited options available in the current transfer market scenario.
So who can Ronald Koeman target? We have a list of 3 players who Everton can target in order to replace Lukaku.
The rumour mills have been abuzz that Jamie Vardy has been the top priority for the Everton boss after Lukaku made his intentions of not signing a new deal at the Goodison park crystal clear.
The England international found the back of the goal only 13 times in a disappointing last season that saw the foxes’ fortunes turn upside down after a fairy tale sorts of a campaign when they won the Premier League just a year ago.
Even though he proved to be rusty last season, this Englishman is a powerhouse of talent as his performance for the foxes in the title-winning campaign speaks volumes about his skills and experience. Even though he lacks the physicality this game needs, he makes it a point to cover it up with technique and finishing ability which makes him an excellent striker.
Even though he has just one cap for his country, the Argentinian is one of the key players at Inter Milan given his track record since he moved.
Icardi, who is Inter’s captain, scored 24 goals in Serie A last season, and also racked up 9 assists, adding up to a super successful individual campaign.
However, reports suggest he’s ready to be on the move again after the team failed to qualify for Europe, as they missed out on Europa League qualification by just one point to arch rivals AC Milan.
While he doesn’t have blistering pace, he will be a player to look out for in whatever team he plays in, as he is deadly in the box.
The Lyon frontman had a sensational season where he netted 28 goals in 33 games and proved to be a vital man to his side. And the fact that he’s just 25 explains why he’s a hot property in the transfer market right now.
While he has been linked with a host of top European clubs, the hefty price tag to his name has put off suitors until now. He would bring in speed, power and directness to whichever team he plays for. He’s got what all it takes to be a top professional at the top level of this sport.
