Significant day in the history of Everton

Significant day in the history of Everton

There was always only man Roberto Martinez wanted to bring to Goodison Park this summer and that was Romelu Lukaku.

Obviously the signing of Muhamed Besic shouldn't be played down and neither should the permanent signing of Gareth Barry, but this one was the big one.

A £28million price-tag for a 21-year-old who many believe is the best young striker in Europe.

It takes a lot to prize someone like that away from Chelsea, but Everton managed it.

For whatever reason and it's something that many do not understand, Jose Mourinho just didn't appear to take to Lukaku, but Chelsea's loss is certainly Everton and Martinez's gain.

"He is also only 21 and he`s already scored over 30 goals in the Premier League. In my eyes, although he`ll never say it, the target for him is to become one of the best world-class strikers.

"We are the perfect environment for him to do that."
Martinez told evertonfc.com, before continuing: "I can`t put it into words how excited we are and how much we are looking forward to seeing Rom enjoying his football again at Goodison Park.

'It has been a relentless pursuit from our point of view. It had to be a Club-record transfer fee and it is well worth every penny and effort that we put behind it.

"I think it`s one of those days that isn`t just important for the season but a very, very significant day in the history of our football club.
