International Record: 43 Caps, 12 goals

2015/16: It was Lukaku’s best season to date in the Premier League as he finished with 18 league goals to his name, 25 in all competitions.

That would be an impressive tally for any player to achieve, but was more so given the fact Everton finished 11th in the table after a disappointing campaign.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, with talk already abound that the European giants are chasing him and the player himself seemingly determined to exit Goodison Park.

What can we expect?

Given his form, it would be highly surprising to find Lukaku is not the first choice centre forward for Belgium this summer.

He does face a fight for his place though, with the likes of Divock Origi, Christian Benteke and Michy Batshuayi all in contention in a Belgian team stacked with attacking talent.

Nonetheless, Lukaku should be ahead of those and will be determined to have a successful tournament to try to secure himself a big money move this summer.
