Romelu Lukaku's future may not lie at Chelsea after his loan spell at Everton finishes at the end of season according to his agent.
The striker moved to the West London club from Belgian side Anderlecht for a reported £20million three years ago but hasn't cemented himself as a regular first team player at Stamford Bridge. Lukaku's agent Christope Henrotay told the Evening Standard: "For the moment, Romelu belongs to Chelsea.
"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."
The 20-year-old has scored 14 goals in the Premier League this season which is fours goals less than what Chelsea's strike force of Torres, Ba and Eto'o have scored combined in the Premier League.
The Belgian will hope to be leading the line for his country at the World Cup in Brazil where Belgium are seen as a dark horses to win the tournament, and his valuation could well rise if he does indeed impress. Everton have been linked with making their move for the forward permanent, but it's yet to be seen whether or not they can afford the transfer fee.
