Romelu Lukaku 7/2 to join Everton on a permanent deal this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Lukaku to join Everton
Odds: 7/2 @ 888 Sport
Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has been rumoured to be leaving the side for good this summer after not receiving reassurances of his importance to the club. Last season, he was again loaned out to another Premier League side (Everton) and proved his pedigree by scoring 15 goals and making six assists in 31 games.
But Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has proceeded to splash out £32M on Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa this summer that will see the club with a total of four strikers competing for one lone spot in attack.
As a result, the Belgian international is resigned to the fact that he’ll be leaving the club he’s supported as a child. But where he’ll end up has been another argument as he won’t come cheap. Chelsea will want a good return on the £20M they paid for him in 2011.
Borussia Dortmund have been linked, but they recently signed Ciro Immobile from Torino so their attacking options are plentiful. Atletico Madrid remain good favourites too, but 888 Sport are giving odds of 7/2 for Everton to convince the 21-year-old to join them this summer.
