Lukaku's £65m price tag is cooling Premier League interest in striker

Potential Premier League suitors are being put off by Romelu Lukaku's whopping £65m price tag

Everton’s £65million price tag on Romelu Lukaku is scaring potential suitors off after several enquiries from Premier League sides into the unsettled striker.
West Ham and Crystal Palace are among those to have looked at the 23-year-old but the demands were too much for the London clubs.
It could see the Belgium international stay in Merseyside this summer if Everton refuse to lower their asking price or cannot find a club willing to pay what they want.



The £65m valuation was also considered too much by Chelsea, who sold Lukaku to Everton for £28m, as their lack of a buy-back clause in his contract came back to bite them.
Lukaku – represented by super-agent Mino Raiola – has made no secret about wanting to leave Everton.
In May he said he wanted to ‘win titles’ and that it was time to write himself a CV.


Ronald Koeman was appointed as Everton manager last month and, despite the forward’s wantaway attitude, said he wanted to work with Lukaku.
At his first press conference he said: ‘Lukaku is a key player, a goalscorer. You don’t want to lose your best players.
'If I can do something I will, because he is still a young player, he needs support, he can improve.’
