The Belgium international has seemingly incited the Goodison Park faithful following his admission that he is interested in moving on.
The former Chelsea striker has admitted that he is eager to play in the Champions League and that in the future he wants to leave Goodison Park and sign for a bigger club.
With the Belgian international not showing his best form this season for Roberto Martinez’s struggling team, the Everton fans have expressed their frustration with Lukaku’s comments on social media.
The Toffees shelled out a club-record £28 million, per Sky Sports, to bring the 21-year-old to Goodison Park from Chelsea in the summer, but he has not replicated the form that made him a star whilst on loan in 2013-14.
Seven Premier League goals this season is a modest return for the powerful forward, and Everton’s fans have reacted angrily on Twitter to Lukaku’s desires to move on. Here are the best tweets.
What a disgrace if it's true. Everton paid big money, gave him regular football and this is how he repays them. Not worth £28m now #lukaku— Dec (@DecM7) February 13, 2015
Lukaku prove yourself at Everton first. You've been there half a season and you haven't warranted a call from a 'top club' by any means #EFC— Michael (@MikoFergie) February 14, 2015
Lukaku wants a bigger club. This from a man who's first touch is the worst in the prem league.strange how both belgians want away from EFC— Alex Young (@alexyoung1953) February 13, 2015
Did we think we were going to have lukaku for the rest of his career? #efc— peter l (@petefingers66) February 13, 2015
Lukaku needs to show Everton so loyalty and respect. They paid £28 million for him and took a gamble. Disgrace in my opinion #EFC— Paul Britton (@britton1989) February 13, 2015
Only top club Lukaku is going to is a top championship club. Needs to learn how to control a football. Him and Mirallas are deluded. #EFC— Paul Coleman (@dexterdoakes) February 13, 2015
If someone offered us £15m for Lukaku i'd snap their hand off.— EFC Daz 1878 (@EFC_Daz_1878) February 13, 2015
If I'm being honest there's at least 4 or 5 players I'd rather keep more than Lukaku. Don't get me wrong, he is ace. Others better for me!— Neil Tyler (@Tyler_EFC) February 13, 2015
I've never really liked Lukaku. He's lazy and the he's offside far to often and its infuriating. Laugh him out the door I say #EFC— Grace (@grace_callaghan) February 13, 2015
