Lukaku, who is preparing for Belgium’s World Cup qualifier at home to Greece on Saturday evening made no apologies for talking up his own ambitions: “I’ve made a long way until now but the road is still long and I know I have to improve and get better. I want to help Everton as much as I can, as well as the national team. I think a lot of stuff can be achieved.
“Yes. There is nothing wrong with ambition. You have to embrace it and where you are as a footballer.
“The decision has already been made so I can’t talk about that.”
