Giroud favourite to succeed Lukaku at Everton – Vardy 12/1

Olivier Giroud is the most likely name to replace Romelu Lukaku at Everton, according to the latest odds.

We’ve priced up the several potential alternatives to succeed the Manchester United-bound Belgian, and the Arsenal forward is the clear favourite.

It’s 5/4 Giroud moves to Goodison Park this summer, with £20m a reported fee.

FC Koln striker Anthony Modeste is 9/2 to return to the Premier League with the Toffees, while Bournemouth front man Joshua King is third favourite at 5/1.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman is as likely to add Daniel Sturridge to his ranks as he is Javier Hernandez or Timo Werner (all 16/1 for a summer move).

And although Everton are expected to receive £75m for the sale of Lukaku, it’s 33/1 for them to convince former Man United target Alvaro Morata to join.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s far from like-for-like, but the latest odds suggest the Toffees could be about to replace Lukaku with another one of the league’s deadliest strikers.”
