Everton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are delighted after hearing their talisman is set to do a U-turn and stay at the club.

According to the Independent (with quotes from Sportwereld), the Toffees’ in-demand striker Romelu Lukaku is considering turning down interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.

The 23-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, has hinted that the forward is no rush to leave Goodison Park and is excited by the £100 million transfer budget at Ronald Koeman’s disposal.

In the past rumours have swirled around the Tavern that has suggested the Belgian is keen to play for a team in the Champions League, and one that is competing consistently for silverware.

But with the arrival of the Dutch coach and the injection of major funds, the Belgian international may be tempted to stay on Merseyside.

“Everton don’t need money anymore,” he told Sportwereld.

“Romelu wants to play for a club that can win trophies.

“Something’s changed at Everton: there’s a new project. If he leaves, it has to be a good deal for all parties involved.”
