So: the usual transfer rumor crap. Nothing that substantial yet. Seems to be general agreement that Lukaku's stock fell a little at the end of the season, when he failed to impose himself on games. Supply has always been a problem - it's not like the Toffees have Ozil or his like to feed through-balls to the big man- but neither did Lukaku, in the parlance of basketball, create his own shot, especially toward the end of the season. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/spor...ews/everton-striker-romelu-lukaku-25-13113659 Interestingly, Lukaku was not along the leaders in fans' average player rankings for the year; his middling 6.0 was well behind Schneiderlin and Gueye at 6.8. (The best player IMO before his injury was Seamus Coleman, who was solid defensively and the Toffee's best option pushing forward from the back). Obviously Lukaku and Barkley are the big pieces and much will depend on what happens there. Supposedly there is money to spend. Rumors include Joe Hart and Wayne Rooney, which would be a very good 2014 World Cup squad.
