Everton signs Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea

Stanley Chou

Everton's attack got a massive boost with the signing on Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku on a season long loan.

It appeared as a deadline day farce, but it has been confirmed that Everton has signed Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku on a season long loan deal.

The 20-year old will spend a second season on loan in the EPL after his stint last year at West Brom.  The recent signing of Samuel Eto'o makes Lukaku the 4th or 5th choice striker under Mourinho and the lad will need the loan to get some playing time.

The Belgian international had 17 goals in 35 matches for West Brom last year, easily enough to be the top scorer for Everton. Though it isn't a permanent move it would be interesting to see if there is any option for Everton to buy. With Victor Anichebe set to depart and Nikica Jelavic unable to score, a good performance by Lukaku could convince Martinez he is worth what is sure to be a princely sum.

In the mean time, Everton will have to be content with using him for the coming season. He is certain to play a critical role in Everton's attack and with compatriot Kevin Mirallas in the squad, he will have someone who knows just how special he is.

Also it is ok folks, you can get excited and pumped for this one.
