LONDON, March 19 – Everton forward Romelu Lukaku has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could be on his way out of Goodison Park at the end of the season.

The Belgian hitman has been in scintillating form this season scoring 25 goals in 36 games within a Toffees squad that has largely under-performed in the English Premier league this season.

Despite helping his side to two domestic cup semi-finals, the former Chelsea striker admits he’s craving for Champions league football.

“I am 23 this summer,” he told The Independent. “I have been playing since I was 16 and I never had a taste of the Champions League. It is going to be seven years now [as a professional]. You think about it.

“If something happens, it will be for the good of the club.

“We should have at least been in the top four this year because of the way the league is this year,” he added. “You look around the dressing room and wonder how the hell we are in this position.

“I don’t want to leave in a fight, if it happens. I don’t want to say this or that, it is going to be good for the club and good for me personally because, at the end of the day, they were the ones who believed in me at the time when nobody believed in me, and they gave me a platform to perform.”

Lukaku believes he’s reached a new level this season after being previously criticized for his lack of consistency.

“I have been playing since I was 16 so at a certain point you have to make that step into the player everyone expects you to be. At one point last season I was thinking, ‘Am I doing enough?’ Because I’m really fast, really strong, and can score with both feet and with my head but I was too inconsistent.

“From January last year, everything changed but I really had my eyes on this season. Maybe I have proved the doubters wrong by playing like I am. It’s come at the right time. I’m 22 now. This is like a transition year for me. This is the base and then I don’t look back.”
