There has been much talk surrounding Romelu Lukaku’s future in the Barclays Premier League.
The 20-year-old Belgian striker currently plays for Everton but it is no secret that he is on loan from Chelsea.
Lukaku’s move from Chelsea to Everton this season has really worked out quite well. In fact, Lukaku has become one of the most exciting finishers in Europe.
After scoring the game winning goal for Everton in the 74th minute against Southampton earlier today, Lukaku climbed the Premier League scoring ranks by scoring his 9th goal of the season. He is now tied with the likes of soccer giant Wayne Rooney for 4th in goals in the Premier League. Along with his 9 goals, Lukaku has 3 assists and is proving to be a great pickup for Everton.
Despite his talent, Lukaku has moved around quite a bit. He’s only 20 years old but he began his professional career for Belgian club Anderlecht at age 16. He moved from Belgium to join English club Chelsea at 18. Lukaku was a reserve during most of his time at Chelsea because as always, Chelsea has a large amount of talented strikers.
On the final day of the 2013 transfer period, Lukaku was loaned to Everton for the 2013-2014 season.
After moving from a powerhouse such as Chelsea to Everton, Lukaku has taken advantage of his opportunity to be a consistent starter. Actually, Lukaku is growing into a star for Everton and if he continues to stay in his current form, Everton might consider signing this stunning striker to a long-term contract.
