Martinez on Lukaku: "Of course we'll get him"

For Everton fans, this has been the summer of Romelu Lukaku. Confidence in signing Lukaku increased when reports surfaced that the Belgian striker would sign with the Toffees on a permanent basis, ‘within the next 48 hours’.

When asked if the team was going to sign Lukaku, Martinez replied, "Of course, we’ll get him." Many supporters have been concerned by recent rumors that Lukaku may sign with Serie A side Juventus, Bundesliga club...

Martinez urges transfer patience

Boss confirms club is still working on both deals Roberto Martinez has confirmed Everton are trying to sign Muhamed Besic and Romelu Lukaku - but has urged the fans to stay patient. Lukaku has been Everton's number one target for most of the summer, but any move was never going to be completed early given the striker's involvement at the World Cup. Reports of a move for Bosnia international Besic emerged at the start of the month, with the Twitter 'ITK' chancers taking guesses as to when the deal would be completed in the following days (it was always 'within 48 hours'). It seems the deal...

Bacca the target if Lukaku falls through?

Bacca the target if Lukaku falls through?

The latest Premier League scuttlebutt is that Roberto Martinez maintains that Romelu Lukaku is the man he wants to lead his strikeforce in the upcoming season. However, should that permanent transfer not transpire, Everton will be looking at Sevilla's Colombia striker Carlos Bacca.

He made a total of 51 appearances for the club, starting in 39 games. Bacca netted 21 times, with 6 assists on 91...
