Everton are likely to need to sign a replacement for Romelu Lukaku this summer.


Everton fans are hoping that Ronald Koeman makes Javier Hernandez their replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku looks set to leave Everton this summer, with Manchester United and Chelsea both linked.

At the moment Everton are demanding £100 million for the Belgian international, but it is expected that a deal will be done for the 24-year-old before the close of the transfer window (Daily Mirror).

Replacing such prolific scorer will be a hugely tough test for Koeman, but Everton fans believe that Hernandez could be up to the challenge.

Hernandez has previously been successful in England during his time with Manchester United, and he reminded Toffees fans of his quality with his display at the Confederations Cup yesterday.

Hernandez starred for Mexico in their 2-2 draw with Portugal, scoring his nation’s first goal in the contest.

And Everton fans have been impressed enough to suggest that Hernandez should be Lukaku’s replacement.

Hernandez is currently playing for Bayer Leverkusen, and could be made available for transfer this summer.
