Het Nieuwsblad suggest that following Axel Witsel's move to the fledgeling Chinese league, Lukaku is one of five Belgium internationals to have been offered lucrative terms in the Far East.
Both Lukaku, whose European Champions League ambitions are well known, and his agent Mino Raiola have apparently rejected the notion out of hand.

And yes, I am getting pissed off with Everton's transfer dealings!

And before anyone says "Who wouldn't treble their salary if offered?" these guys are multi-millionaires already with more money than they can spend in one lifetime.

It's such a simplistic argument to say "Oh, they already have enough money". For what? What might they want to achieve? What is "enough money"?

Lukaku represents everything wrong with Everton Football Club in this era – a preening, posing nonentity only interested in himself at the expense of the team.
Him and his gobshite of an agent are being indulged by Kenwright at our expense.
Get rid and start getting in players who would be proud to play for us and maybe put in a bit of effort occasionally.
I'd drive him to the airport myself but his agent can fucking walk.

Yeah, OK, I guess Rom's goal every two games is totally unimportant to the team's success.
We've got lots of guys who can do that.
Fact is, we have a boatload of players who are "proud to play for us" but who couldn't find a goal with a telescope.
I'll take Rom all day, attitude and all. But then, I like goals. And winning.

I'll always blame Moyes for playing Hibbo out of position. Heaven only knows how many goals we lost out on.

Just thinking of all the trophies we've won with him as our striker.

I was unaware that Lukaku has been our striker for the last 22 years. What a lack of ambition on his part to stay at this club for 22 years without winning a single trophy.

We'd probably get about a squillion quid for him from the Chinese. We could call our stadium the Romelu arena and could have a giant statue of him waving his arms about outside...

Did you hear that we just loaned one of your type of players to Hull? Proud to be an Everton player, worked hard, didn't complain. So you really want a team full of Niasse types? Better check with Koeman first, as he didn't much care for the lad.

I mean, have you seen the guys stats? All lines of communication must be jammed solid...

His lack of celebration after scoring a goal in the FA Cup tie tells you all you need to know about his attitude. He is the only Everton player in my 55 years of being a blue that I really dislike.
