Everton striker Romelu Lukaku says that staying at Goodison Park next season is not an option.
The Belgian, who netted 25 times for the Blues last season, has told reporters in his homeland that he is staying calm and knows where his future lies.
No bids have been accepted by Everton this summer for the striker, but sources at the club say they know he is leaving.
“To stay at Everton is not really an option for next season,” he said.
“I remain calm, serene compared to what is being said.
“A return to Chelsea? No comment. There is nothing concrete with a club at the moment, my agent is busy talking.
“I will not make big statements about my future I know where I want to play; in a club which is playing in the Champions League and can win titles in England.
“I think England is a league that suits me well because I already know the style of play.”
