Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that he wants to leave the club over the summer in order to further his career.

Everton finished a disappointing season in 11th place in the Premier League, a performance which cost boss Roberto Martinez his job.

The club has a new owner in Farhad Moshiri and Lukaku says he will listen to what he has to say - but still expects to leave.

"I'm at a point where I have to make a good career choice," Lukaku is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

"We have a new investor at Everton and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles.

"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.
