Widely regarded as one of Europe’s top young strikers, Lukaku has already struck seven goals in 12 Premier League games for Ronald Koeman’s seventh-placed side, and is attracting attention from a number of elite clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain.

But Tuttosport write that Juventus have also joined the race to sign the 23-year-old and sent scouts to watch him play in the 1-0 away defeat to Southampton over the weekend.

Strongly linked with a move away from Goodison Park over the summer, Lukaku eventually chose to commit to the Toffees for at least a further season following positive discussions with Ronald Koeman.

But speculation has since resurfaced, with Koeman himself recently suggesting that the Belgian international should look to leave the club at some point to further his career.

“He is correct in his finishing in front of goal,” the Dutchman said. “At the last moment when he has to finish a chance, he’s one of the best I have experienced myself in my time as a footballer and certainly as a coach.

“I know what Romelu has left. His potential is greater and higher than Everton (as a) final destination. If Romelu plays at Everton until the end of his career, I know he has left something behind.”

Long-time admirers Juventus acquired Gonzalo Higuain from rivals Napoli for a fee of £76.5 million during the summer, but remain intent on adding to a striking line already boasting the Argentine and Paulo Dybala.

Positive relations with Lukaku’s Italian agent Mino Raiola could strengthen the Bianconeri’s cause in their pursuit of the pacey forward, however, it is believed Everton have set a hefty price tag in excess of £65 million on the head of their star forward.
