    Romelu Lukaku became Everton's Club record signing in July 2014, penning a five-year deal.
     
    The striker made the permanent switch from Chelsea after enjoying a hugely successful loan spell at Goodison Park the previous season, when he plundered 16 goals in all competitions.
     
    His transfer was sealed after he had helped Belgium reach the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
     
    Lukaku had previously had another hugely productive temporary spell at West Bromwich Albion in 2012/13, during which he netted 17 times for the Baggies.
     
    Earlier in his young career, the powerful frontman had shot to prominence when he made his Anderlecht debut as a 16-year-old and became a regular for the next two seasons.
     
    His form caught the eye of clubs across Europe but it was Chelsea who won the race for his signature in 2011. He was a bit-part player for his first season, playing mainly in the League Cup and for the reserves.
     
    The following campaign he agreed a loan switch to the Hawthorns and was immediately among the goals. Lukaku would score in a win at Anfield and bag a hat-trick against Manchester United before returning to Stamford Bridge.
     
    At the start of the 2013/14 season, Lukaku made three substitute appearances for Jose Mourinho's side, including one in the UEFA Super Cup, before switching to Merseyside.
     
    Lukaku's Everton career started with a bang and he scored a winning goal at West Ham United on his debut, before grabbing a brace at home to Newcastle United.
     
    He continued to find the net regularly as the season progressed, netting another double in the home Merseyside derby and a wonderstrike in the 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal.
     
    He signed off from his loan spell with the Blues by scoring in the final Premier League fixture of the season - a 2-0 win away at Hull City.
     
    Lukaku then headed to the World Cup, where he was on-target in the Red Devils' last-16 victory against the United States.
     
    And upon returning to Europe, his move to Goodison Park was rubber-stamped as he once again linked up with manager Roberto Martinez.
