The Belgian spent last season on loan at Goodison Park after becoming frustrated at a lack of first team football at parent club Chelsea.

With the Blues signing strikers Diego Costa and Didier Drogba during the summer, it appeared that the talented front man would need to move permanently away from Stamford Bridge in order to get some first team football.

Several clubs were interested in Lukaku and the striker admits he did think about moving to Turin but insists he has made the right decision by signing permanently for Roberto Martinez side.

“I thought about Serie A and Juventus because they are a big club,” Lukaku told the Sunday People. “But for me Everton was perfect.

“I’m here and I’m happy. I don’t regret any choices I’ve made. Everton was the best choice I could make as a young player who wants to progress and develop.

“This club is a good fit for me. They made so many efforts to get me. I feel at home here.”

Everton have started the season poorly and currently sit 17th in the table. Despite this, Lukaku insists his side’s main target is to break into the Premier League’s top four.

“Everton play good football, we play at the top part of the league and everyone wants to win,” he added.

“We want to show that last year wasn’t a fluke.

“Our mission is to get that Champions League slot because it was in our hands last season and we let it slip.”
