Ronald Koeman has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku has told the Everton manager that he wants to stay at Goodison Park.

The Evening Standard reported on Friday that Chelsea were still interested in the Belgium international as Antonio Conte looks to bolster his attacking options at Stamford Bridge.

The same article states that Toffees boss Koeman was preparing Everton for life without their towering striker ahead of a potential return to the west London side this summer.

Lukaku came off the bench to help Everton come from behind and secure a 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking to the media after Everton’s first Premier League win under the Dutchman, Koeman revealed that Lukaku has decided to commit his future to the Merseyside club.

Lukaku scored 17 times in 37 Premier League games for Everton last season as the Toffees finished in 11th place.
