Everton manager Ronald Koeman has surprisingly admitted that Romelu Lukaku would probably leave the club since a player of his quality deserves to be playing in the best competitions.
It comes as a statement that may attract a lot of backlash from the club supporters. Lukaku is the club’s record signing after having cost £ 28 million from Chelsea in the summer of 2015.
Everton were able to play this figure after witnessing Lukaku’s impressive performances on loan at the club a year ago. A player of incredible talent, Lukaku has continued to remain as one of the top players in the Premier league even in the 2016-17 season.
The player came in with a transfer request in the summer which was turned on by the club. He has expressed his desire to play in the Champions League team for quite a while.Koeman expects this desire to be satisfied sooner rather than later, as he does not see a player like Lukaku staying at Everton for long.
