Romelu Lukaku has confirmed that he could find himself a new club during the summer transfer window. The Belgian international has been strongly linked with a move away from Everton with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus and, Manchester United in the running to acquire his services.

The 23-year-old had a good season with the Toffees, but it was not enough to lift the club anywhere near the European qualification places.

While speaking to The Star, Lukaku stated his desire to win trophies, and this could lead him to a bigger club ahead of the next campaign.

"I'm at a point where I have to make a good career choice," he said.

"I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football.I got that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea.

"People in Belgium don't see me playing for Everton, but I am respected by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry."

Lukaku scored 18 league goals for the Toffees, who ended the 2015/16 season in 11th with 47 points.
