Everton have slapped a £65million price-tag on their Belgian hitman who looked certain to sign a contract extension.

But the former Anderlecht striker revealed the clubs lack of ambition has made him want to quit the club and look for a new challenge.

Chelsea – who sold Lukaku to Everton back in 2014 – are favourites to land the attacker who has one year left on his current contract.
