Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles is backing Atletico Madrid's move for Romelu Lukaku.

The Chelsea striker was outstanding on-loan at Everton last season.

Robles, formerly of Atletico, said: "Lukaku is very similar to Diego Costa, but I honestly think that he is physically more powerful. He is a beast, fighting, and always has a goal inside him, like Costa.

"He is always available, even during the 'ugly competitions', and has character in abundance. He is the type of player Diego Simeone is looking for, and could convince him in a day."
