West Ham striker target valued at £100m

Romelu_Lukaku_3156402bAccording to the Liverpool Echo, Everton has slapped a world-record £100m price tag on wantaway striker Romelu Lukaku. The Premier League top scorer has refused to sign a new contract at Goodison and wants to leave for a side in the Champions League.

Karren Brady claims he has long been a West Ham target and says the Hammers have tried to sign him on two separate occasions.

Brady wrote in her Sun diary column “ROMELU LUKAKU is a classic shape for a centre-forward — big, broad and decisive.

Not all strikers are built like Everton’s star — take Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

None are as important as Lukaku to Everton. His brace sinks Leicester today.

We have twice tried to buy him but he wants a club playing Champions’ League football — and quickly.

You can’t dismiss his ambition but it’s a shame he regards such an admirable club as little more than a stop-over.”

  1. That’s a naughty headline Sean that will just get the haters hating. He’s not a West Ham target and Brady never said he was a West Ham target and certainly not at £100M. What she said is he was a West Ham target which I think we all know is true when he was valued at between £20/30M. Pity we never got him eh?

  2. Oh Gid Lukaku. I have bad dreams with that joker scoring goals from all angles & Randolph letting that slip out of his hands, diving over them, trying to head them out! Saturday is ruined already…
