Everton striker Romelu Lukaku wants to quit Everton at the end of the season and Chelsea are leading the race to sign the striker with the most goals in the Premier League this season. Lukaku is reportedly valued at £70million by Everton.
Ex-Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp has blasted Lukuka for going missing in big games after the striker’s performance against Liverpool on Saturday.
Redknapp wrote in Daily Mail: “Ross Barkley will bear the brunt of the criticism from the Merseyside derby but where was Romelu Lukaku at Anfield?
“The Premier League’s top scorer did not get a sniff against Liverpool. This was not the first time the Belgian has failed to make an impact on a big game this season.
“Lukaku is one of the hardest players to value. He wants to play in the Champions League but teams will be nervous to splash out £70million on the striker in a way they would not be with a player like Dele Alli.
“Lucas was superb as the shield in front of the back four. He didn’t give Lukaku an inch of space and made the most tackles of any Premier League player this weekend!”
