Romelu Lukaku’s future is yet to be decided ahead of the Belgian’s return to Chelsea, the on-loan Everton striker’s agent has confirmed.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a permanent switch to the Toffees in recent weeks, whilst Tottenham Hotspur have made enquiries about the forward.

If there are too many [great strikers], they’ll choose to allow Romelu to leave

Lukaku has scored 14 goals and made six assists in 30 Premier League appearances this season after moving to Goodison Park following his penalty miss in the Super Cup last August.

And agent Christophe Henrotay confirmed that the striker and his club Chelsea would have to decide what is best for the striker as Jose Mourinho attempts to land a big-name signing.

“For the moment, Romelu belongs to Chelsea,” Henrotay told the Evening Standard.

“He has two years left on his contract. It’s going to depend on Chelsea. After that, we’ll see together what the best options are if Chelsea decide to let him go.

“That they want to bring in a big-name striker has been well-documented. But Chelsea need lots of great strikers. And if there are too many, they’ll choose to allow Romelu to leave.

“But if they think there aren’t enough forwards, perhaps Romelu will say, ‘I’m interested in prolonging the adventure’ but it’s still too soon.”
