Romelu Lukaku, who has been linked with Arsenal for some time, has come out and publicly stated that he will be leaving Everton this summer. He also admitted that he was watching Leicester City when they collected the Premier League trophy and was overcome with desire to win it.
“In my head I know where I want to go but I’m keeping that to myself,” he said in the Guardian. “You will know when it is concluded. I have to make a good choice but in my head that has happened already. I have played [in England] for five years now, it’s my league. But there are other nice clubs. I follow Spanish and German football and I also have something for the Italian league.
“Wherever I go I want to win prizes,” he added. “During Leicester’s title ceremony I was standing just 10 metres from the trophy. I just stared at it for two minutes, forgetting to get on with the warm-up. I thought to myself, I want that.”
Obviously if Bayern Munich or Real Madrid are in for him then we will have very little chance, and although most papers are of the opinion that he will going to join Manchester United then I would have to disagree. He left Chelsea because Mourinho refused to promise to play him in the first team, and if Ibrahamovich is already signed then Lukaku would spend a lot of time on the bench again.
The way I see it is that if he wants to win the Premier League, then his best chance at the moment is with Arsenal. He would definitely be first choice at the Emirates….
