Tottenham Hotspur interested in signing Romelu Lukaku

"There aren't 20 teams that can afford to buy Romelu."


Lukaku currently on loan at Everton FC although Spurs keen to recruit the Belgian on a permanent basis

Tottenham have been short of striking options this season and it appears they are looking to bolster their front line over the summer by acquiring the services of Romelu Lukaku.

The striker is currently on the books at Chelsea, who have loaned him out to Everton for the season, despite many being puzzled that Jose Mourinho has bemoaned the lack of striking options at Stamford Bridge.

However, perhaps Mourinho doesn’t rate him to the extent that he might be prepared to let him leave at the end of the season on a permanent basis, with Tottenham sniffing around a player who has previously impressed during a loan spell at West Brom.

“I’m looking for a club for Romelu,” Lukaku’s agent Christophe Henrotay said. “And yes, I’ve talked to Daniel Levy once, but that doesn’t mean Romelu will definitely join Spurs. That’s not a talking point at this moment.

“There aren’t 20 teams that can afford to buy Romelu. He won’t go from Everton to, let’s say, Swansea. There’s also a difference between Everton that plays against relegation and an Everton that fights for European football.”

This suggests that Lukaku could yet remain at Goodison Park, especially if they secure Champions League football this season, with Roberto Martinez’s side clashing with Arsenal on Sunday for a match which could a long way in determining which team finish in the top four.
