Romelu Lukaku is a man in form and the league’s top scorer has been frequently linked with a return to Stamford Bridge after refusing to extend a contract that still has two years to run.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman admits it may be difficult to retain his best players this summer. “I don’t know, will see at the end of the season,” he said on the prospect of keeping the Premier League’s leading scorer.
“First of all we like to keep the best players but that’s difficult. We know that’s difficult and I don’t know at the moment if it’s possible. Then we have to analyse the team to see what we need. We need to analyse what we need with the offensive players to score more goals, because the gap between Rom and the rest in terms of goals is too big.”
Lukaku is the league’s top scorer this season with 24 goals already to his name and has been linked strongly with a return to Chelsea.
