Another day, another Juventus striker story in the Italian press, and this time there’s a little bit more focus on Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.
The Serie A champions are looking for someone to replace the departing Alvaro Morata, and Corriere dello Sport look, in detail, at most available options on the market.
Michy Batshuayi seems to be the preferred option, but the Everton striker, and Batshuayi’s compatriot, is also a possibility, albeit a more expensive one.
While the Marseille striker wouldn’t cost any more than €40m (£31m), Lukaku is a different kettle of fish, with the Merseyside club refusing to start negotiations before being offered at least €50m (£38m) (try more like €60m), and there are doubts as to whether Juventus want to pay that.
The player’s agent, Mino Raiola, has already told the press Italian clubs couldn’t allow themselves to spend so much money on his client, so it seems a move to Spain or to another club in England remains the likeliest option.
Rest assured, though, that if Juventus really want him, they’ll probably do their utmost to get him.
It’ll probably all depend on how flexible Everton will be regarding payment in instalments.
