Lukaku Target Summer Move As He Turns Down New Contract Offer

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has refused to sign a new deal with Everton but the club will continue to negotiate with the player. Everton were willing to make the Belgium international their highest-paid player on a deal worth £100,000 per week.
Reports then claimed there was a disagreement over a proposed release clause with Everton wanting it set at £90m and Lukaku's side looking for the figure to be closer to £70m. The news is a blow to Everton's board who had been informed by Raiola in December the deal to extend Lukaku's contract was 99.9 per cent done. However, it is understood both the club and the player have not given up hope of reaching an agreement.

Last month the player's agent, Mino Raiola, stated Lukaku intended to snub interest from Chelsea and commit his future to Everton but the negotiations have broken down with the player informing the club on Tuesday afternoon he will not sign the deal as it stands.

At the weekend, a Belgian broadcaster asked Lukaku whether he was going to sign the contract, whether he was still reflecting on it and whether there was an agreement and to each question the striker simply answered: No
