Lukaku deserves move to "top club" next summer

In Sir Alex Ferguson'a final game as Manchester United manager, his team and West Brom played out an enthralling 5-5 draw. While United fans have suffered watching their team ever since that day, the player who went and bagged himself a second half hat-trick has become the striker he always thought he could be.

Romelu Lukaku certainly never doubted himself, talking to the Liverpool Echo in February, the Belgian international said: "I just want to grow as a player and arrive at a top club again."

Everton fans may feel disgruntled at his claims they're not a "top club", but grow he certainly has, and with seven goals in his last six, Lukaku has already been linked with European giants Paris Saint-Germain in a £45 million deal.

If Everton are not a top six club then which of the teams that make up that luxurious contingent would not be improved by Lukaku? Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have just one brilliant striker each, United's struggles in front of goal have been well documented, Diego Costa is not the player he was last season and Arsenal are still lacking a world class striker. Everton will have a battle to keep Lukaku on their books come next summer.

If he continues to show such great form and skill, it is inevitable that he will get his move to a 'top club.' While they showed great resistance not to sell John Stones over the summer, surely Lukaku's prolific form will have everyone scrambling after him.

Strikers who guarantee goals are a rare breed, but Lukaku has become exactly that - a killer striker who lives for goals. With top clubs struggling so desperately in front of goal, don't be surprised if a bidding war is started next July.
