Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has told Sky Sports News HQ that his future is being handled by his agent, amid suggestions he is being lined up for a move to Arsenal.

Lukaku, who has been Everton's top scorer for the last three seasons, has been heavily linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer, but he insists he is instead choosing to focus on helping Belgium progress into the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.

The Gunners have become the latest club to be linked with a move, with Juventus and former club Chelsea also rumoured to have an interest in the 23-year-old.

But Lukaku says he is not letting the uncertainty surrounding his future on Merseyside get in the way of his Euro 2016 campaign, adding that he has entrusted his agent Mino Raiola to decide on his next move.

He said: “It’s my agent who is dealing with [my future], I’m just focused on Belgium, and the most important thing is helping my team."

After being heavily criticised for a below-par performance in the defeat to Italy in their opening game, Lukaku has bounced back to score two goals for his country, and is expected to lead the line again for their last 16 tie with Hungary on Sunday.

The winner of that game will face Wales in the last eight, after they beat Northern Ireland 1-0.
