The agent of in-demand Everton forward Romelu Lukaku says his client is ready to play for one of Europe’s “best teams”.
Reports this week have suggested the Belgian’s representatives have held early discussions with Juventus about a move, while Manchester United are also monitoring his future at Goodison Park.
Lukaku, 22, has scored 18 goals in 29 games for the Toffees this season but with the club languishing in mid-table, the former Chelsea man is understood to be open to leaving this summer in search of European football.
And his agent, Mino Raiola, has hinted a summer move could be on the cards.
He told Belgian outlet DH: “He’ll keep getting stronger.
“Everything depends on his work and on luck. He’s already ready to play in Europe’s best teams.
“I’m not surprised by his performances. He has a heart of gold, which is very important in football, and has a lot of talent.
“Since we’ve been working together we’ve put a structure together that allows him to only think about football.
“This has allowed him to think exclusively about his personal objectives.”
