Analysis: Why Chelsea move would be a no-brainer for Lukaku


Phil Neville and Jermaine Jenas join Gary Lineker on Match of the Day at 22:30 GMT on Saturday on BBC One and the BBC Sport website for highlights of seven Premier League games. You can watch highlights of Everton v Leicester and Sunderland v Man Utd on MOTD2 at 22:30 on Sunday.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku could have a big decision to make in the summer.

He is a fantastic athlete who scores lots of goals but he is still learning the game and, under the right coach and around better players, he is going to get better – the question is, where?

Everton are an ambitious club and a fantastic platform for Lukaku to continue his development but if a Champions League side come in for him and tell him he is going to be first choice, there is not much of an argument for him stay.

Lukaku has scored 83 goals in 159 games in all competitions for Everton since 2013 and is the Premier League’s top scorer this season with 21 goals in 30 league games

That is a big ‘if’ because he comes with a £60m price tag, but there is already plenty of speculation about Lukaku’s next move.
