The agent of Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has confirmed he has held talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a potential move once his loan spell at Everton ends this summer, Sky
Christophe Henrotay told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad that his client would leave Stamford Bridge before next season and he has spoken with Daniel Levy. “I’m looking for a club for Romelu,” 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. There’s also a difference between Everton that plays against relegation and an Everton that fights for European football.”
Het Nieuwsblad added that Everton are ‘in pole position’ to sign the 20-year-old and suggestions in the British Press that a move to Spurs has already been agreed are ‘nonsense.’
The report adds that Lukaku’s chances of remaining at Goodison Park depends largely on the club qualifying for the Champions League. A fee of £20m has been mooted.
