In a bizarre twist to Everton stance on Romelu Lukaku in the summer, the Everton boss Ronald Koeman have come out to say that Lukaku deserves to play for a big club. He likened Lukaku to Kluivert who moved to Barcelona at a young age.

“I think he can emulate Patrick Kluivert, who also rose to prominence at a young age and enjoyed a fantastic career,” Koeman told Dutch newspaper HLN.

“He eventually played for Barcelona and I can see Lukaku doing the same.

“Everton should normally not be the end for him.

“Romelu will not have made the most of his career if he plays for Everton for the remainder of his career.

“He has the potential to play for a bigger club than Everton, but nobody knows what will happen after this season.”
