Chelsea may struggle to lure Romelu Lukaku away from Everton now that Ronald Koeman is in charge at Goodison Park.
The Belgium striker, currently at Euro 2016, has been making noises about leaving this summer with a host of clubs, including the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan and Paris St Germain, reportedly interested in securing his services.
However, the striker’s representative, Mino Raiola, has suggested the player could now stay on Merseyside following the appointment of Dutch coach Koeman.
“If he leaves, it has to be a good deal for all parties involved,” Raiola said. “Everton don’t need money anymore. Rom wants to play for a club that can win trophies. Something’s changed at Everton – there’s a new project.
“Romelu certainly has the qualities to play in Italy but as the Italian landscape currently looks, there is no team that can afford him. He is too expensive for Serie A.
“Only a global club can pay him. The top clubs in England, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris St Germain and, of course, Bayern Munich.”
