Hold onto your hats Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern, its going to be a bumpy ride as you attempt to hang onto Romelu Lukaku this summer!
But could there be a beacon of hope in the race to keep the big man?
According to the Daily Express, Goodison Park bosses are looking to meet Lukaku’s agent Mino Raiola in the next few days as they attempt to finally resolve the future of the Belgian international striker.
Chelsea have spent large parts of the summer flirting with the idea of moving for their former striker, but ahead of the season openers this weekend, there has been no reported move from Stamford Bridge.
But this news will come as a welcome break for both Toffees fans and Ronald Koeman, who have spent large parts of the summer swatting away rumours linking various European giants with their best players.
Now, the Toffees are reportedly trying to tie down the Belgian once more, by offering a deal more reflective of his standing as a 20 goal Premier League marksman.
So, Everton fans, are you happy Lukaku might be closer to staying at Goodison this time round? Or is it time for him to pack his bags? Let us know below!
