West Ham have continued their public transfer policy by revealing two failed bids for Everton striker, Romelu Lukaku.

As reported by Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, Karren Brady says the club have tried to sign the Belgian striker but he would prefer a move to a team playing Champions League football.

After a successful season with Everton, Lukaku has been linked with moves away from Goodison Park, with a return to his former club Chelsea thought to be the most likely outcome.

Manchester United are also thought to be interested in the striker who has netted 23 times in the Premier League this season.

Lukaku is believed to be valued at somewhere in the region of £70 million, and whilst no time frame has been mentioned of the failed bids from West Ham, it appears that the Hammers were never going to stand much of a chance of securing the player’s signature this summer.
