Everton braced for January bid for 23-year-old from European giant - report
By Dominic Toner
Paris Saint-Germain are set to make a January move for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, according to a report.
The Mirror report that French league champions PSG are a big admirer of the 23-year-old and are set to test the resolve of Toffees manager Ronald Koeman.
It is understood that both Koeman and owner Farad Moshiri want to keep their star striker, but are likely to receive an offer from the European heavyweights.
Lukaku has revealed that he is aware of some interested clubs and his agent will only contact him if there is a concrete offer.
“[My agent] never tells me anything,” Lukaku said, as quoted by the Mirror. “As long as there is nothing, black and white and on paper, he will not bother me with it and I respect that. That is his way of working. I know they [interested clubs] are there though.”

Lukaku has started the new season in good form and scored seven goals in 10 games across all competitions.
Everton completed the signing of the forward in 2014 as he completed a £28million switch from Chelsea.
The Belgium international has made 138 appearances for the Merseyside club since his arrival, scoring an impressive 68 goals and supplying 26 assists.
PSG are still trying to fill the void left by striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the summer as he joined Manchester United on a free transfer, with Lukaku considered an option to replace the Swede.
