Former Arsenal and West Ham striker John Hartson has suggested that if Lukaku wants to leave, then Everton should let him go.

“If he wants to go, if Lukaku has made his mind up that he has done all he can for Everton, why would Everton and Koeman want to keep an unhappy player?” said Hartson on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6, August 8, 2016).
