Everton are signing Romelu Lukaku, according the Toffees boss Roberto Martinez.
Martinez made the comments to one Everton diehard who has a YouTube channel called “Nil Satis Nisi Optimum”.
After watching Martinez take some photos at an open training session, the Everton fan engaged tehir SPanish manager from the stands, asking him whether the club were likely to sign Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.
Rather than shy away from the question, Martinez was filmed saying “of course we’ll get him!”
Whether Martinez was just having some banter, or indeed he was being honest about the club’s chances in signing the Chelsea man remains to be seen.
Roberto Martinez is keen to retain the services of Lukaku after a successful spell on loan at Goodison Park last season when he scored 15 league goals in 31 appearances.
