Sky Sports pundit has advice for Everton regarding Romelu Lukaku’s future

Chelsea and Manchester United are both claimed to be interested in the striker, his father recently claimed.

Former West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland striker Don Goodman said on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 1) that Everton should not sell Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window.

The Everton striker’s father, Roger Lukaku, was recently quoted as saying that a number of clubs are interested in the youngster.

“He's ready," Lukaku Sr told Het Laatste Nieuws, as translated by ESPN. ”I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United. I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern Munich."

Goodman believes that Everton should do their best to keep Lukaku at Goodison Park next season.

"You understand why he wants to play Champions League football, of course, you do, but if I were Everton, I would be moving heaven and earth to keep him," said Goodman on the Sky Sports Now show on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning (broadcast from 10am, April 1).

Lukaku is one of the best young strikers in the Premier League and has been in great form this season.

The 22-year-old has scored 18 goals and created 47 chances in 29 league matches for Everton so far this campaign.

The Belgium international has a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 53%, and has won 68 headers, 33 dribbles and six tackles.

Everton are 12th in the Premier League table at the moment with 38 points from 29 matches and have a game in hand.
