According to reports, Arsenal have agreed terms with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku as they continue their search for a striker after England international Jamie Vardy decided to stay at Leicester.
As claimed by Emanuele Giulianelli who writes for TribalFootball and ‘co-operates’ with FIFA Weekly, Panenka, FourFourTwo and others according to his Twitter profile.
“Despite Chelsea pressing, Arsenal has agreed personal terms with Lukaku. An offer will be submitted.”
Looking at this report, questions are being raised that how have they agreed terms with the player if they haven’t even submitted an offer?
To me it’s highly unlikely that Everton, who want to keep their striker, would just go have a chat, get back to Arsenal whenever with an offer, whatever’.
There is no doubt about his quality, as only Argentine striker Sergio Aguero has scored more Premier League goals than the Belgian over the past four seasons and new Everton manager Ronald Koeman will be desperate to keep hold of him. Lukaku, is under contract at Goodison until 2019.
According to the Daily Express, Everton have reportedly put a £75million price tag on his head to ward off potential suitors, while another British tabloid claim new Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is prepared to offer the player £100,000 a week to stay.
