Romelu Lukaku loves the Everton fans, no matter what happens

"No matter where you play you want to be remembered".

BBC reports that Lukaku started the week by turning down the most lucrative contract offer in Everton's history before ending it at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.

The three previous players to do so are Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney - so he is the first foreigner to rack up so many Premier League goals at such a young age.

Lukaku is the first Everton player to score 21 league goals in a season since Gary Lineker in 1985-1986.

Lukaku added that despite the club's progress under major shareholder Farhad Moshiri and manager Ronald Koeman, Everton had failed in its pursuit of several transfer targets.

Koeman, speaking in an interview via Mirror, has since pleaded with the club's avid and passionate supporters to brush the obscurity surrounding Lukaku's future aside, and get behind the 23-year-old as he aims to fire the Toffees and himself towards European football. I spoke to Rom this morning and I know it is hard but if you are a player prepare yourself to play good and score goals. "I don't think they will boo him, because we need the support - every player needs the support", said Koeman.

It is believed the Belgium global wants to test himself against the best players in in the world, and feels he can only do this if he is playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Barkley's piercing through-ball inside wing-back Andrew Robertson picked out Tom Davies, timing his run perfectly, and his low cross was side-footed home by Calvert-Lewin, who has emerged from the under-23s this season after arriving from Sheffield United in 2016. "But the final result didn't reflect what happened on the pitch", Koeman added.

"It's always very hard to always take the best decision".

"He scored his first goal but it's a whole team performance that matters".
