Romelu Lukaku admits desire to play for a 'top club'

Romelu Lukaku has said he has plans to play for "a top club" after permanently joining Everton just under a year ago.

The Belgian striker is Everton's record signing as they splashed out £28 million to secure the strikers signature from Chelsea.

Mediocre season

The move came after a hugely successful loan period at Goodison Park last season where he netted 15 Premier League goals in 31 appearances. However Lukaku has not quite replicated that form this campaign, but has still managed ten goals for an Everton side who have been under par as a collective.

Lukaku played against his former side in Everton's 1 - 0 loss at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night where he was pleased with the reception he got, although that could have changed had he converted the golden chance he had.

The striker also revealed his desire to play for a top side again, according to Sky Sports.
He said: "It was brilliant to play at Chelsea and I had a good reception.

On the way out

"They know I'm a good player but that I wasn't to develop so I can eventually get back to playing for a club like Chelsea.

"I don't have a secret ambition to rejoin - there are other clubs in the world. I just want to grow as a player and eventually arrive at a top club again."

Although there is no clear time-frame on Lukaku's plan to leave Goodison Park, this report will not be happy reading for Toffee fans.
