Romelu Lukaku
Lukaku would prefer to remain in England and Chelsea will only sell him outright

Romelu Lukaku wants to remain in the Premier League with Chelsea only interested in selling him outright this summer, according to the assistant of the striker's agent.

Despite excellent spells on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton over the last two seasons Lukaku looks to be no closer to breaking into Jose Mourinho's first team plans at Stamford Bridge.

Both Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are keen to take the Belgian international on a permanent basis while Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Wolfsburg are willing to offer the striker the first team opportunities he craves on the continent.

But according to Oscar Damiani Junior, an associate of Lukaku's agent Christophe Henrotay, the 21-year-old is content to remain in England.

"For the Italian teams there is little chance (of signing Lukaku)," Damiani told Calcio Mercato.

"Chelsea will sell him outright. Juve were informed but, again, at present there is no chance for homegrown clubs. It is really a shame not to sign him, because he is a great player. Will he stay in the Premier League? I believe so."

Lukaku's agent Henrotay has previously revealed in April he had held preliminary talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy about a possible move across London for his client.

However, Everton are also very eager to secure a deal that will bring the Chelsea striker back to Goodison Park next season and the club appears confident of sealing a deal after their head of recruitment Ian Atkins revealed the striker wants a return to the blue half of Merseyside.

"Hopefully things can be sorted out, I think he is quite settled in his mind that he wants to come to Everton and hopefully he'll be pulling on our blue shirt again next term," Atkins told talkSPORT.

Lukaku is all but certain to leave Stamford Bridge this summer with the arrival of Diego Costa and the return of Didier Drogba to the club ensuring he remains down the pecking order.
