These were the best Romelu Lukaku jokes as the Everton striker’s potential transfer fee took a hit during Belgium’s 0-2 Euro 2016 defeat to Italy.

Missing a golden chance and displaying a first touch that could kindly be described as ‘erratic’, Lukaku made a laughing stock of the £65m price tag that was hung around his neck just a few months ago.

It had probably already lowered significantly over the course of Lukaku’s dismal end to his club season, which saw the Toffees finish 11th in the Premier League.

If his form doesn’t pick up soon then either suitors like Chelsea and PSG will give him a swerve, or any fee that Everton do get could be tens of millions off what they were hoping for.

On the bright side, there were plenty of funny Romelu Lukaku jokes doing the rounds:

Never have I seen a player's value drop before my eyes as quick as Lukaku's did tonight. You might find him as a free gift in a happy meal

Juve to Everton:

We would like to put an official bid of £60M for Lukaku.

Sorry we meant £25M

Actually don't worry.

Every match that features Lukaku should be a PG18 cos his first touch is a horror movie.

If you say 'Lukaku's got no first touch' three times in a mirror Roberto Martinez turns up and tells you he's phenomenal

Lukaku sounds like a really big Pokemon whose special move is a terrible first touch.
