Lukaku Premier League goal record
FootyOn look ahead with Romelu Lukaku Premier League goal record odds to see if the Everton frontman can dethrone all-time scorer Alan Shearer in his career.
The Toffees striker has been in sublime form this current campaign.
At just 23 years of age, alongside Tottenham’s Harry Kane, he looks more than capable of achieving that feat.
The pair of Premier League poachers are head-to-head in the battle for the top-flight Golden Boot too.
If Shearer’s goalscoring supremacy is ever to be truly challenged, it looks likely to be by Everton’s clinical forward Lukaku.
The Belgium international bulldozer could have that milestone in his sights, if he remains in England’s top-flight for the foreseeable future.
Lukaku is therefore a highly promising 22/1 with Sky Bet to score at least 260 Premier League goals in his career.
So, read on to see why these Lukaku Premier League goal record odds are worth backing as a long-term punt!
On-fire Lukaku can continue rampant run
All-time top-flight marksman Shearer notched up an impressive 260 strikes during his time with Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.
The former England striker also won the Premier League title with the former back in 1995.
His incredible tally was racked up between 1992 and 2006, when he eventually retired from the sport at Newcastle.
Lukaku could well be the man to beat him.
Once signed by Chelsea as a seemingly suitable successor to Didier Drogba, things didn’t go to plan in London.
The youngster failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, but has done so and more since arriving on Merseyside.
Lukaku has become Everton’s key man and Koeman’s main attacking threat in the Premier League.
Can Everton’s main man maintain scoring surge?
If the Belgian sharpshooter can continue his current rate of scoring, he’s on course to break Shearer’s record.
This could even occur by the time he turns 30 years of age.
He is one of only five players to score 50 top tier goals before turning 23.
Lukaku is now also on the verge of 100 Premier League strikes – an incredible feat considering his current age.
Following the forward’s sublime season so far, only club icon Duncan Ferguson has netted more league goals for Everton.
Reports have emerged regarding the striker’s current contract situation, though.
Lukaku is being linked with a move to likes of Manchester United in the summer.
At 23 years of age, he may have one or two big transfers still in his future.
But, providing he remains in England then Shearer’s all-time Premier League goal record is in sights for Lukaku.
So, make sure not to miss out on the 22/1 odds available for him to net 260 top tier goals in his career.
