Mino Raiola has spoken about his Romelu Lukaku's future, and it makes for interesting reading.

The agent, best known for representing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was speaking to Belgian outlet La Derniere Huere about the Everton man and he dropped some big clues about his future.

With the Belgium striker, who scored twice against Ireland on Saturday, reportedly carrying a price tag of €80m, Raiola admitted that only a handful of clubs could swoop for the player.

"The top Premier League teams, Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG," was the very short list according to Raiola.

However, there was one other option; staying at Everton.

With the club under new ownership, and with a new manager in Ronald Koeman, the possibility that the striker would stay at Goodison next season was very much on the cards.

"Things have changed since Everton have new owners and a new project," Raiola said. "The club is no longer obliged to sell; they don't need money. So Romelu will only leave if all three parties find an agreement."

The Express today claim that Arsenal have turned their attention to the 23-year old after their bid for Jamie Vardy appears to have failed.
