Lukaku’s Everton future ‘depends on Chelsea’

Romelu Lukaku could leave Chelsea this summer, his agent has said, but ESPN reports that the decision will be made by his club.

Lukaku has spent the season on loan at Everton, scoring 14 goals as Everton reached fifth place in the Premier League table, and the Toffees have spoken of their desire to retain the 20-year-old.

But while Christophe Henrotay didn’t dismiss the prospect of Lukaku remaining at Goodison Park, he did say it was up to Chelsea to decide what they wanted to do with the Belgium international. “For the moment, Romelu belongs to Chelsea,” Henrotay said. “He has two years left on his contract. It's going to depend on Chelsea. After that, we'll see together what the best options are if Chelsea decide to let him go.

“That they want to bring in a big-name striker has been well-documented,” Henrotay added. “But Chelsea need lots of great strikers. And if there are too many, they'll choose to allow Romelu to leave. But if they think there aren't enough forwards, perhaps Romelu will say, 'I'm interested in prolonging the adventure.' But it's still too soon.”

Everton are not the only Premier League side keen on the ex-Anderlecht man, it’s claimed, as Tottenham Hotspur are also considering Lukaku as a signing for the summer.

Lukaku has made only 15 appearances for Chelsea, having been sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, despite moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2011.
