Everton Have Clear Plan For Stefan Lukic
According to MozzartSport Everton are finalising a deal to bring Serbian youth international Stefan Lukic to Goodsion Park.
Dubbed a ‘wonderkid’ by Heerenveen site FeanOnline, Lukic, who will leave Partizan without making a first team appearance said:
“Everton have been following me for some time.”
“Once I decided the move was right for me and I wanted to play for them, we quickly agreed on the terms.”
Lukic, who has also been tracked by Barcelona, Chelsea, Benfica, Arsenal and Inter, has starred in the Partizan youth team this season with over 20 assists and six goals in 14 games.
And the teenager has revealed his agent has been on Merseyside to tie up a move to Goodison Park:
“My agent has travelled to England and is now finalising the deal,” Lukic told MozzartSport.
“They [Everton] have a clear plan in place for my development. The goal is to allow me to develop, get experience and become a better player in the Netherlands.”
He continued: “After one year I will then get the chance to pull on the Everton shirt. It is every young players dream to play in England and in the Premier League.”
It is reported Everton will pay Partizan a €50.000 development fee in compensation for Lukic who has been at the club since the age of nine.
