The Mail Online understands that Everton have slapped a £45m price tag on striker Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgium international, who secured a permanent move to Goodison Park last summer having spent the 2013/14 campaign their on loan, scored his eighth goal of the season in Sunday’s 6-2 win over bottom-of-the-table Sunderland.
His form has alerted European heavyweights Paris Saint Germain and Juventus though the Merseyside club will not do business for anything less than £45m – £17m more than the fee they paid to secure his services.
In total, Lukaku has racked up ninety-five appearances for the Toffees, scoring forty-four goals while he has forty caps for his country, four of which were won at last summer’s World Cup finals.
Roberto Martinez’s side moved up to ninth place with that win last weekend, and they can be backed at 9/5 to take all three points from their trip to West Ham United on Saturday.
