The summer transfer window will be officially open very shortly and with it, brings an unexpected trail of twists and turns as some of the biggest and best players in the sport swap clubs.

One player who should be looking for pastures new is Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international was tipped for the very top when he became the 2009/10 top scorer in Belgium with Anderlecht at just 16 years of age. It was his goals that secured the league title for his side, marking an important chapter in the forward's history.

After impressing in Belgium, Lukaku left for Stamford Bridge where a lack of game time and some poor games stunted his overall growth.

After being shipped out on loan for successive seasons, Lukaku sealed a permanent transfer to Everton, becoming the most expensive player in the club's history in the process.

Lukaku has certainly lived up to expectations at Goodison Park, scoring a remarkable 43 league goals in three seasons at the Merseyside club. Last season, in particular, the 23-year-old proved his worth in gold scoring 25 times in 46 appearances across all competitions.

In addition to his improved scoring record, the former Chelsea man has visibly developed the technical aspects of his game. His hold up play is excellent and he now possesses the ability to bring midfielders into play, making him a better all-round centre-forward.

Lukaku's impressive form has seen him replace Christian Benteke as his country's leading striker - a decision he proved was the right call by bagging a brace in a crucial tie against Ireland in Euro 2016.

The former Chelsea forward has openly expressed his desire to play in the Champions League and based on last season, Everton seem quite far away from that goal.

The Merseyside club finished a disappointing 11th in the league and failed to capitalise on rare campaigns where giants such as Chelsea and Liverpool faltered.

Everton have acted quickly to sack manager Roberto Martinez and install Ronald Koeman as his successor but there is no guarantee it will be enough to persuade the big Belgian to stay.

At 23, Lukaku will soon be approaching the peak of his career and deserves his shot at the top level. Several clubs such as Bayern Munich and Manchester United have been linked with the Everton man and this summer might just be the right time for Lukaku to get the big move he desires.
