Romelu Lukaku: Tipped to net again this weekend

Former Everton and Manchester United striker Louis Saha has urged United to break the bank to sign Toffees striker Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has scored 18 league goals this season, the most by an Everton player in Premier League history.

The Belgian striker moved from Chelsea on a permanent deal in 2014 for a fee in the region of £28m, but has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park.

Former striker Saha, who scored 28 league goals for United and 27 for Everton, believes that Lukaku should be targeted this summer.

“I have to admit that I rated Lukaku highly when he was at Chelsea, when he was young. I could see he was not ready, but now he has performed really well at Everton,” Saha told IBTimes UK.

“And definitely he will bring something to the United side because he is strong, he has got that presence to trouble the central defenders.

“With someone like Lukaku on United’s side, especially his presence around the box, along with [Anthony] Martial playing on the left and [Wayne] Rooney also linking with Lukaku, it will be great.

“It would be nice to have him at United. In terms of strikers, in terms of options, in terms of diversity and attacking options, Lukaku will be a right fit.”

Both Manchester United and Everton will bid to reach the FA Cup semi-finals this weekend, with both sides pitched against Premier League opponents at home.
