Juventus join the race for Romelu Lukaku

Juventus are chasing Everton attacker

Juventus are chasing Everton attacker Romelu Lukaku.

Everton remain hopeful they can persuade Lukaku to extend his contract, even though the 23-year-old has told club bosses he will not do so.

But if Everton cannot, it is understood they will ask for more than the £65million Barcelona paid Liverpool for Luis Suarez in July 2014 — the highest fee received by a British club for a specialist striker.

According to Turin sources, the Serie A titleholders are watching developments closely.

The Bianconeri enjoy a good relationship with the 23-year-old striker’s agent, Mino Raiola.
