Liverpool told to beat Chelsea to £70 million star forward

Liverpool have been urged to sign Romelu Lukaku this summer, should he leave Everton.

Former striker Robbie Fowler claimed that the club should move heaven and earth to sign the £70 million man, and beat both Chelsea and Manchester United to the striker.

Lukaku is set to be a wanted man, though Everton selling their star man to a team who are thought to be their great rivals will certainly cause a stir – and be harder than Liverpool may think.

Fowler wrote: “Let’s face it, he (Lukaku) is leaving in the ­summer and Jurgen Klopp needs a proper striker to lead his line if he’s going to win the Premier League. I have a theory that Bayern Munich will try to sign Lukaku in the summer – after selling Robert Lewandowski to Real Madrid.

“But if he’s leaving ­Goodison, why not move to ­Anfield?

“The Reds have struggled tactically against lesser teams, who put banks of defenders behind the ball and invite opponents to find space that isn’t there. They are fine against the top-six teams because they come and try to win, which is perfect for the sort of movement Liverpool’s current ­forward line creates.

“With (Diego) Costa, with Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, even Zlatan Ibrahimovic, you can be patient and ask the central striker to keep pushing up against the defensive back line, to get off the shoulder in just a yard of space.”
