Lukaku contract situation ‘not an issue’ for Everton owner Moshiri

⚽ Lukaku contract situation ‘not an issue’ for Everton owner Moshiri ⚽



Everton’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri says Romelu Lukaku’s refusal to sign a contract is ‘not an issue’.


Reports emerged on Tuesday regarding the Belgian striker’s current situation with the Toffees, indicating that perhaps he was not prepared to sign a new deal.


Lukaku’s agent Mino Raiola recently said there was a ‘99.99% chance’ his client would put pen to paper on a brand new deal at Goodison Park but the player himself simply replied “No” when asked if he had signed or was contemplating an offer from Everton.


But Moshiri has reportedly told Sky Sports‘ Jim White that: “It’s not an issue. We have a strong relationship with the player and agent.


“No-one should worry, he’s our player.”




23-year-old Lukaku has scored 19 Premier League goals this season and continues to be linked with Chelsea, Manchester United, Juventus and PSG.


He is contracted with Everton until the summer of 2019.
