Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku is hoping to star at Euro 2016 in order to increase the interest in signing him. The sought-after Everton striker scored a brace for the Red Devils in their 3-0 win against the Republic of Ireland and Lukaku has revealed that a number of clubs are already interested in his signature.
Lukaku, 23, has been linked with a host of clubs in recent times, including Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-German. And while the Belgian admitted the French club represents a "great project", he is currently focused on excelling for his country at Euro 2016.
"PSG are a great club, with a magnificent project, a world-class squad. But everything is in the hands of my agent," said Lukaku, who left Chelsea in 2014. "A lot of clubs are obviously interested in having me in their squad."
Despite this, Lukaku insisted that his immediate priority is performing well for Belgium at Euro 2016. "I have to continue to play well and have a good European Championship so that more clubs are interested in me," he told GQ magazine amid the Chelsea rumours. "But I'm still under contract with Everton. We'll see what happens."
Lukaku joined Chelsea as a teenager in 2011. But after successful loan spells at West Brom and Everton, the club's then-manager Jose Mourinho chose to sell the youngster to the Toffees. Since then, however, he has been strongly linked with a return to Stamford Bridge.
