The rumours are starting to flow ahead of next month's transfer window and the latest suggests Manchester United may be eyeing up a move for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has been in sensational form for Everton this season and scored his 12th Premier League goal of this season in his side's 1-1 draw against Norwich last Saturday.

As Everton paid a whopping £28m to lure him from Chelsea in the summer of 2014, it seems highly unlikely that they would not consider selling the Belgian forward unless a monstrous offer was put on the table.

Yet reports in Italy and the Manchester Evening News suggest Lukaku is a name on United's wanted list, with under-pressure boss Louis van Gaal eager to bolster his side's attacking threat after a desperate slump in form.

Rumours that Van Gaal may be about to resign as United manager saw bookies install the Dutchman as favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post on Monday

Yet that scare story came to nothing and Van Gaal will be in place when United entertain Norwich on Saturday, with the pressure on to get back to winning ways after a Champions League exit was followed by defeat at Bournemouth last weekend.
