Everton are in contract negotiations with Romelu Lukaku, the player’s agent has revealed.

Chelsea attempted to re-sign Lukaku in the summer but Everton remained firm in their stance that the striker is not for sale, rejecting a number of bids.

The Belgium international had previously suggested he may stay at Goodison for just one more season, however Mino Raiola admits his client could extend his deal further.

“We are talking, yes it is possible that he could stay,” he told the Daily Mail.

“This year the message was clear he was not for sale and he is really happy there at the moment. We are happy with what the club is doing now, we will see how the season goes.

“I spoke with him after his hat-trick against Sunderland. I said you were rubbish, you should have scored six!

“There was talk of Juventus but no-one can afford him in Italy. Outside of England, realistically the only clubs that can afford him are Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid.”
