Lukaku scores twice for Everton after rejecting new deal

Lukaku is stalling on signing a new deal at Everton as he wants to keep his options open this summer, sources confirmed to ESPN FC earlier this week.

Hull remain in the relegation zone and Marco Silva's team are three points from safety with nine games left to beat the drop.

Everton's English striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin (L) celebrates with Everton's English midfielder Ross Barkley after scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Everton and Hull City at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on March 18, 2017.

"Maybe you can stop him for 85 minutes but when it is 11 against 10, even when it was 11 against 11, if he gets space and if they make the kind of mistake for the fourth goal then he will punish that".

The Argentinian attacker, who joined Italian side Genoa from River Plate past year, who Everton signed Ramiro Funes Mori from.

If he does go, Everton will need to make big-name signings, especially with Romelu Lukaku now also seemingly destined to depart the Merseyside club.




However, for almost 80 minutes an unconvincing performance against relegation strugglers appeared to be adding weight to the striker's argument. He's now two clear of the injured Spurs striker Harry Kane.

He picked up after the break, with one shot rifled over from the edge of the penalty area and another fierce angled drive tipped behind by Jakupovic, which had the Gwladys Street End singing his name.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman, meanwhile, who has urged supporters not to give Lukaku a hard time in Saturday's clash with Hull.

The manner in which one grateful fan gleefully accepted Lukaku's shirt when he hurled it into the crowd at the final whistle showed his harsh words have not affected his popularity - helped of course by his goals.

But the £28m club-record signing revealed this week he won't be signing a bumper new £130,000-a-week contract. We have had a great run at home. "Champions League and whatever types of games", he added.
