Lukaku’s departure would be a disaster for Everton

The tall Belgian has now scored in each of his last eight home games for Everton and despite criticism after failing to score against Manchester United and Liverpool.

The Belgian proved why he has become so valuable to the Toffees with another ruthless performance against Leicester.

If they fail to keep him at Everton, it will be a disaster for the club given he is their biggest goal threat.

Without Lukaku’s goals this season, Everton would have scored just 30 goals throughout the campaign, which is less than every team in the Premier League except Middlesbrough and Sunderland.

Aside from his two goals, he produced several moments of class including a delightful back-heel flick which set-up an opportunity for Ross Barkley in the box.

It was only a matter of time before he scored another too and he made sure of it with his 23rd Premier League goal of the season in the second half.

With Jose Morinho trying to rediscover United scoring spree, the Toffeeian has highly linked with United move to replace the aging Zlatan or out-of-Form Rooney.

Should he leave, Everton would sweat next season if they fail to close on a better replacement.
