Everton to ward off Romelu Lukaku's contract suitors with £100 million price tag

Everton's Romelu Lukaku has scored 24 league goals this season and the Belgian's exploits have not gone unnoticed. Potential suitors are already circling with Chelsea and Manchester United rumoured to be preparing bids. Everton are however not interested in selling their star player and will try to put off clubs with a £100 million asking price.

Lukaku will not sign a new contract though Everton are still looking to convince him of their own ambitions by recruiting aggressively this summer to build a squad capable of competing at the top of the Premier League and in Europe. United and Chelsea would both expect Lukaku's fee to drop in any negotiations and would hope the player would push for a move.
