Romelu Lukaku's father believes his son is getting better and better with every passing season and has offered some advice to the Everton striker regarding his future.

Roger Lukaku recently revealed a host of clubs were in pursuit of the 22-year-old following what has been excellent season of goalscoring.

And he believes the time has come for young Romelu to consider leaving Goodison Park in search of a bigger European club this summer.

In an interview with a Belgian newspaper, as per the Independent, he said: "He’s ready. I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United.

"I know his agent prefers Italy but I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern Munich. Manchester United is a team under construction with no real focus.

“Bayern is a machine where he can rotate well. The only condition is if Robert Lewandowski leaves. With the playing style of Bayern, Romelu will make a lot of goals."

He believes, however, that his son must avoid the likes of Chelsea and Juventus for various reasons.

"A return to Chelsea would make everything complicated," the Belgian continued. "And Juventus has two, three strikers.

"Anyway [it must be] a team where he always plays, rotation is nothing for him. He takes care of himself well, he’s not often injured and is physically strong.

"Every year, he gets better and more complete. I am sure he becomes the top scorer in the Premier League. He is growing towards a level where he will say, ‘give me the ball, I’ll find a solution’."

Lukaku has enjoyed yet another fine campaign for the Toffees, scoring 25 goals in 37 games across all competitions, five more than last campaign's collective total.

The former Chelsea striker recently admitted he wishes to play in the Champions League next season, which 12th-placed Everton look incapable of providing.

Lukaku said, according to the Guardian: "That is the next step for me. I’m 23 next summer and I think it would be nice to play in the Champions League from next season."

He also responded to questions regarding his father's wishes for him.

"That’s my dad’s point of view," he added. "I think those are the teams he likes.

"It means people are keeping an eye on you. I have an agent who is dealing with this for me at the moment."
