Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is “ready for a big, big move” as Chelsea and Manchester United circle, claims former Belgium manager Georges Leekens.
The Toffees frontman has netted 23 times in the Premier League this season to spark further talk of big-money transfers.
He has also snubbed the opportunity to pen fresh terms at Goodison Park as he takes aim at the grandest stages in football, including the Champions League.
Leekens feels a man he handed an international debut to in 2010 should be setting his sights high, with his strengths making him an obvious target for Europe’s top clubs.
He told the Daily Mirror: “Romelu has always been ambitious and Everton aren’t at level of Barcelona, a Real Madrid or a Chelsea.
“He’s not a boy any more. He’s confident and ready for a big, big move.”
