Everton loanee Romelu Lukaku has said that though he still considers his future to be at Chelsea he has insisted that he is hoping to make a valuable contribution towards the Toffees season, Sky Sports reports.

The Belgium international had largely been expected to be a part of Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge this season having impressed whilst on loan at West Bromwich Albion during the 2012/13 campaign. However, despite the club being short on options up front, he was allowed out on loan once again by joining Everton for the season.

He made his debut in this weekend’s encounter with West Ham United, and set about making an impact by notching a late winner in the 3-2 victory and he has admitted that he is looking at using his time at Goodison Park as another springboard for making the most out of his career.

“Everton were that step I needed. As a team they are always close to the top four and get to cup finals. That was really interesting for me,” he said.

“Every time I played against them I had difficult games so I wanted to play in that team. After the top teams I think they are the best team in the league.

“At my age the most important thing is to play and develop. Everton gave me the opportunity so I’m very happy to be here. Chelsea is the future.”

He added: “It’s true that I watch every single game in the league – 90 minutes. I take my time to study and to learn other strikers’ movements and to learn about other defenders. I take my time.

“Really I want to be one of the best in this league so you can only learn from the best by watching the best. After training I go home and record every game. I have a satellite and I just watch the games.

“My aim is to go down as one of the greatest. That’s why I’m at Everton. I’m here to help the team, the team is here to help me.”
