Everton are being linked with the signing of Jordan Lukaku from Lazio, with the full-back described as ‘practically out of the Biancocelesti squad.’
The Belgium international made 43 appearances for the Stadio Olimpico side last season, helping them finish fifth in Serie A.
However, he has been touted for a move to the Premier League this summer, with Leicester City and West Ham United also rumoured to be interested in his services.
As such, the Italian daily claims Lukaku is currently an isolated figure within the Acquile ranks, as he waits for a deal to be completed to allow him to leave.
Everton are known to be in the hunt for a new left-back as they seek a long-term replacement for veteran Leighton Baines.
The Goodison Park side, who sold Lukaku’s brother Romelu to Manchester United last summer, are thought to be the frontrunners to sign the 23-year-old.
