Wilkins warns Lukaku against Chelsea return

Despite keeping a low profile by refusing to comment on the ongoing saga regarding Lukaku's future at Goodison Park, the spotlight has been on Raiola since he claimed his client was "99.999 per cent" likely to sign a new five-year deal.

The Blues are said to be closely monitoring the contract situations of two star players at Goodison Park.

Lukaku, who is the Premier League's joint-top scorer with 19 goals this season, has been linked with a return to former club Chelsea, from whom he joined Everton for £28m in 2014.

EVERTON striker Romelu Lukaku has questioned whether the English Premier League club shares his ambition to challenge for major honors and says he wants to be "remembered by winning trophies", not just for scoring goals. "Ross is a boy from Everton, and what we need to show to him is the best reasons to stay".

Maybe Ronald Koeman knew something we didn't when he pointedly said in his pre-West Brom news conference, "it's still not signed". Lukaku has refused a new contract at Everton. The big aim in football is to win as many titles as you can, so we need to try more, give a bit more. "There is no need to take him out of the team".

"No matter where you play you want to be remembered".

CHELSEA are eyeing up a £100million double swoop for Everton pair Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley, according to reports. "We have a strong relationship with the player and agent".

"Then you are talking about Champions League and whatever types of games".

"Secondly, and I spoke with Rom this morning, I know it's hard but if you are a player, prepare yourself to play well and score goals - the rest needs to be done by the manager and the club".

Raiola's appearance comes at an interesting time for United's attack, too, considering Ibrahimovic's one-year contract expires at the end of this season, with no clear indicator as of yet in regards to whether he'll sign an extension. "If we keep our level, it is hard to beat Everton, and more so at Goodison Park".
