Romelu Lukaku arrested in LA: Everton striker held over ‘excessive noise’ amid £75m move to Man Utd


Premier League star Romelu Lukaku faces court action in the US after being arrested while on holiday in Los Angeles.

Police said the 24-year-old Everton player was warned repeatedly over “excessive noise” at a property in Beverly Hills before being arrested.

It means the striker, who is expected to complete a £75m summer move to Manchester United, will have to return to the city on October 2 to appear at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse.

Lukaku was arrested at the property at around 8pm on July 2 before being released at the scene with the citation.

Beverly Hills Police said they responded to five other noise complaints from the same location, which resulted in verbal warnings.

Belgian international shared a holiday photo on Instagram at an LA apartment with United star Paul Pogba and NBA player Sergei Ibaka, two days after his arrest.

The police statement, which gave the Belgian’s full name, read as follows:

If Lukaku’s £75m transfer to United is completed it will be among the most expensive in the sport’s history but set a new record for a switch between two Premier League clubs.

His former club Chelsea had also reportedly expressed an interest in re-signing the player, who scored 32 goals last season for Everton.

Lukaku’s scheduled court appearance does not conflict with the forthcoming Premier League schedule but falls at the start of a 10-day international break before Belgium play World Cup qualifiers on 7 and 10 October.
