Everton striker Lukaku: Ibrahimovic book convinced me to call Raiola...

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed how he became a client of super agent Mino Raiola.

Lukaku admits the key to the relationship was Juventus defender Ouasim Bouy, currently on-loan with PEC Zwolle.

He recalled to Sport/Foot magazine: "I needed an agent and I called my friend Ouasim Bouy, who I've known since I was 11.

"I asked him for the number of his agent Mino Raiola and I called him.

"Why Raiola? Because I had read the book of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, in which he told how he had chosen him.

"I wanted the same thing."
