Romelu Lukaku has been one of the few bright spots for Everton in what was a thoroughly disappointing 2015-16 for the Toffees. They failed to finish in top 10, occupying the 11th position at the end of the season.
In his three years so far at Goodison Park, the Belgian forward has netted an impressive 61 goals in 127 appearances for the club across all competitions. He finished among the top 5 scorers in the league this season, scoring 18 goals. Therefore, he has emerged as one of the hottest properties in the goal-scoring department in Europe.
It has been known for quite some time now that the 23-year-old striker favours a move elsewhere in search of Champions League football in order to propel his career to new heights. Here’s a look at the most probable clubs, in whose colors, Lukaku could turn up on the pitch next season:
1. Paris Saint-Germain
With iconic striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic announcing that he won’t be playing at the Parc des Princes next season, PSG need to fill the gaping hole left in front of the goal by the departure of a player who has been Ligue 1’stop scorer since the last 4 seasons.
Lukaku would be a good, if not perfect, replacement for Ibrahimovic. His desire to play Champions League football would also fulfilled as PSG are almost guaranteed to qualify for the tournament every year. Also, considering that PSG are one of the few clubs would would hardly make a fuss about the high price tag that Everton are expected to set for Lukaku, this deal may easily go through.
