Roberto Martinez Claims Lukaku Value Triple Of What It Was

Romelu Lukaku is one of the finest young strikers in the world and will be one of the hottest property in the summer transfer window.

The Toffees striker is currently the leading scorer in the Premier League and is probably facing an imminent exit away from Goodison Park in the summer. The leading club to sign the in-form attacker is his former side Chelsea, who are on the look out for a prolific goal scorer to match and possibly replace Diego Costa.

However, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, who also managed Lukaku at Everton, has claimed that playing for the country has rocketed the player’s price and if the London club want to land their hands on him, they will have to cough up at least £90 million in the transfer window.

Chelsea sold Lukaku to Everton in 2014 for one third the value at £30 million and since then he has become the club’s all time Premier League leading goal scorer.

The big forward has currently 23 league goals to his name this season, and has provided 6 assists.

Martinez told FourFourTwo, “What’s important is that as a club, if you lose a player, you lose him on your own terms. Rom has doubled or trebled the initial fee that Everton paid for him.”

To add to that, he sparked the situation further by saying “It’s difficult to say [if Everton can keep hold of Lukaku].”
