Lukaku annoyed by speculation – Chelsea still favourites to land him

Everton star Romelu Lukaku is growing increasingly annoyed with speculation about his future.

The Belgium striker has turned down the offer of a new contract at Goodison Park, and he seems likely to be on his way out of the club this summer.

Former club Chelsea are leading the chase to land him, and are firm favourites at 7/4 to seal his signature – in a deal which would break English transfer records and would likely be in excess of £75million.

However, Manchester United are also being linked and the player himself is growing tired of the news.

“As long as I didn’t make a public statement about my situation please stay out of my business ok?” the 23-year-old, who has more than two years remaining on his existing deal, wrote on Twitter.

“Some media these days are annoying man.”

Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey believes that Lukaku is on his way to Chelsea, and revealed last month that Everton have asked about Tammy Abraham going the other way.

“Chelsea want Lukaku back, there is no doubt about that – they are selling Diego Costa and so there will be no shortage of cash at Stamford Bridge. Lukaku and Alvaro Morata are both in their sights, and as it stands Lukaku will be returning to West London,” Bailey told

“Lukaku knows the club, he also believes he has unfinished business after being sold without what he deemed being given a fair chance at claiming a first-team spot – now he will be coming back with a huge price-tag on him but also the chance to become a Chelsea legend, that will be hard for him to turn down.”
