Deulofeu: Lukaku is the perfect striker

Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu has praised record signing Romelu Lukaku and says that the big Belgian is the perfect striker.

The Spaniard has praised the relationship that the pair have and says it is easy to play with him as he is a good player and it makes it easier.

“When you play with other good players, it so much easier,” Deulofeu told evertontv. “Whenever I get the ball, I look for Rom. Sometimes we will work on it in training, but it is natural.

“For me, he is the perfect striker. He is a big striker. When I put in the crosses he is very good with his head.

“I tell him “go to the first [near] post”, because when I put in a cross between the defence and the keeper in the middle, it is perfect for him.”


How do you rate the Lukaku/Deulofeu relationship?
