Rom article in American ESPN:

Lukaku is a more rounded player than the one that walked into Goodison four seasons ago. There is still a tendency to drift out of matches when service is lacking, but work rate and overall contribution to the team are generally on the rise as the influence of Koeman becomes clear. Nowadays Lukaku is more of a team player rather than an individual playing his own game within a game.

The reality of the situation is that Lukaku is invaluable. No fee would be sufficient compensation compared to the time, effort and risk involved in replacing him. Those factors outweigh any big-money sale.

In view of his recent performances, it's a bit embarrassing that he's only on 75K a week in view of some of the salaries that other clubs are paying their top earners. We need to keep him and his agent at least semi-happy.

We need to do something.

Even if it's just to make sure that if he does go, we get enough money for a whole new team.

Sure i saw a decent report saying he is on £90k and is our top earner.

Still worth more like

I think Raiola is after a share of the profit made when Lukaku is eventually sold on. That share will probably be reflected in a huge increase in wages. 150,000 for starters is my considered opinion. Players like Aguero and Ibrahimovic are behind him in the scoring stakes and are on wages of 200,000 to 250,000 a week, don't forget Rooney's reputedly on 300,000. He's no less a goalscorer than any of them. Lukaku's agent is about to smash our wage structure into dust.

No, you were right and i was wrong. £75k according to the times today:

Whilst offering his new contract I would double that without blinking an eye.

I've no illusions with what we're going to have to pay Lukaku to stay here. There's not many players who would be an upgrade on him. I think once the ball starts rolling with the mad wage structure, better players will sign. It has to be the next obvious step in improving the playing staff.

If Palace are paying Benteke £120,000 a week then Rom has to be minimum £150,000

I'd much rather we followed the Spurs model to be honest. I.e. No-one over £100k/week. Keep everyone hungry and a respectable distance between the weekly wage of team-mates, not one or two way out in front.
We're Everton not fuckin Palace.

He should be on circa 125-150k a week in the current market in my humble opinion

The shite are about to give Lallana £150k pw if that's what the offer to Lukaku is we've got a bargain.

If anyone believes we're going to keep hold of him for less than 150,000 a week, I can't see it. Raiola wants his cut and they will also want a percentage of any fee when/if he's ever sold. It's either that or the sell on fee will be factored into his wages. He's too much of a commodity and his goals boil down to supply and demand. It should be a no brainer as he's in pole for the golden boot, which is no mean achievement if he manages to win it.

To hell with Spurs, we pay Big Rom what he's worth, make him feel happy and properly valued here.  Then in the summer...properly supported.

He should be a Blue unless and until Real or Barca come calling.  And maybe not even then.  Don't put a limit on what we can dream.  I for one think he loves us, at least as much as any star player loves his side.

I don't think they do. Sissoko is top earner on £90k/wk.
