The 23-year-old player reportedly wants to leave Goodison Park but Toffees bosses want a huge fee for his abilities.

Just before going on a Euros stint this summer, Lukaku finished his third season with the Toffees. In this time he’s scored 18 goals in 37 Premier League appearances under manager Ronald Koeman along with appearances in 46 games in all competitions for Everton, netting 25 goals.

Down to his impressive play last term, he has attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and more recently, Italian Serie A squad AC Milan.

“Informal contact was made yesterday between Arsenal and Everton but in my opinion, the deal won’t progress despite Lukaku wanting the move.”
