On-loan Everton striker Romeu Lukaku has revealed he would be interested in a permanent move to Goodison Park, if they achieved Champions League qualification.

The Belgium international also revealed his parent club Chelsea haven't spoken to the forward in over two months.

"It's not a bad idea. If we play Champions League, yeah, why not?" said Lukaku to the BBC when asked if he would stay.

"I was watching the games this week and I miss European football a lot."

However, despite the lack of contact from the Europa League champions, the 20-year old insisted his ambitions lay at Chelsea.

"I would like to be successful at Chelsea but I have to work and grow and be a better player and then at the end of the season see what is the best decision for my career."

Having joined the Blues for around £20m in 2011, Lukaku has spent the majority of his Chelsea career out on loan.

The Belgian forward was loaned out to West Bromwich Albion last season, netting an impressive 17 goals, including a final day hat-trick at Old Trafford.

Lukaku has started this campaign in similar form, scoring seven goals and helping Everton to seventh, three points behind Chelsea.

Despite his performances, Lukaku told BBC Football Focus: "It's a bit strange at the minute, the last time I heard from [Chelsea] was a couple of months ago.

"But I think they are watching my performances."
