LONDON: Manchester United have agreed a fee of around £75million to sign striker Romelu Lukaku from Premier League rivals Everton, according to British media reports.

The 24-year-old, who joined Everton permanently in 2014, scored 25 goals and provided six assists in 37 league games last season to finish as the league's second highest scorer. His exploits helped Everton secure a seventh-placed league finish.
