Stan Collymore has claimed Romelu Lukaku is now worth a huge £65million after his stunning display for Everton against Hull on Saturday afternoon.
The Toffees ran out a convincing 4-0 victory over the Tigers at Goodison Park with two goals from Lukaku adding to strikes from Enner Valencia and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
There is seemingly mass speculation regarding the future of the powerful Belgian after reports in the week shared that he had rejected a new deal.
But, that hasn’t seemed to have affected his performances and after the game Collymore shared on his personal Twitter account tat he is now worth £40million more than his initial £25million valuation four years a go.
To think there are many who've doubted the lad the last few years.

Lukaku has been a tremendous success at Everton after making the switch from Premier League giants Chelsea for a club record £28million.
With a stunning return of 83 goals from his 156 appearances for the club he has more than justified the hefty fee spent to sign him and more.
However, with just two years now running on his contract if he doesn’t sign a new deal then Everton may have to sell him this summer in order to get his true valuation.
