Koeman handed massive Everton boost over 18-goal forward

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has handed Toffees manager Ronald Koeman a huge boost by staying with the club, according to the Daily Mirror.

After scoring 18 league goals under Roberto Martinez last season, the Belgian marksman had been linked (according to the Evening Standard last week) with a return to former club Chelsea.

The Blues were the 23-year old’s first club on these shores, signing him as a teenager from Anderlecht back in 2011.

However, according to the report, the forward has told Koeman he will remain at Goodison Park.

After receiving big investment over the course of the summer, the club are understood to be prepared to make the striker their highest-paid player in a huge £100k-per-week deal.

As a result, he has reportedly told the former Southampton coach that his future is on Merseyside, spearheading their attack.

Everton themselves have been active in the market in recent weeks, welcoming the likes of Yannick Bolasie and Ashley Williams.

John Stones has been the only major departure thus far, with the new boss currently keeping a strong core of talented young players.
