yeah he's a proven Prem goalscorer. Morata's goal record at Juve wasnt great but I think for overall general play he would be better than Lukaku who can be a bit clumsy during build up.

I have concerns about Lukaku's record being a bit bullyish, doesnt really score against the top teams but that might just be becuase he's at Everton

Wouldnt be surprised if this is just a ruse to get Real to lower Morata price though

He scored 4 of his goals last year vs City (2 in 2), Arsenal and Spurs. That's 4 in 11 games vs the Top 6 (missed one of the Spurs matches). Scored 3 vs Leicester too if you want to count them. Not like he's pure flat track bully

He's played 35, 33, 36, 37, 37 league games the last 5 years, so pretty good injury record

Just realised in his 15 games for Chelsea (all comps), he never scored

he's another Rooney, he'll be burnt out by 28/29, played way too many games already in his career

ha very true, anyway the signings of Lindelof and a defensive midfielder are the key to us scoring in the big games away from home

I'd credit him for his goal scoring. Everything else needs more work.

might have been a case of being big fish in small pond? though Jose doesnt like his teams to press so he'll be grand in that regard

I have to admit, one of the lads in work showed me that without telling me the story and I didn't realise it wasn't Lukaku

Swansea rejected a £40m bid Sigurdsson. The market is mental.

ah they know everton are flush now

I reckon if Everton had waited to buy all the players they did until after they sold Lukaku each of htem wouldve cost 5 -10m more

Is it what's being said on Twitter by fans?
