Ronald Koeman admits Everton will discuss any transfer offer for striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, but insists his club "will try to do everything" to keep him at Goodison Park.

Lukaku is the Premier League's top scorer with 24 goals in 32 appearances this season, and has been widely linked with a move back to Chelsea after confirming that he will not sign an extension to his current Everton contract.

If someone is interested for sure they will call the board and then we will speak about it but we will try to do everything to keep him at Everton next season.

He has scored 24 goals and with five games to go he can reach a really high total.

It is like for any player who is performing at a high level - every team likes to have goalscorers in the team because goals make points for the team.

But I think he is improving in the rest of his football. He is doing better pressing and running in the channels.

He is now a better striker for the team than he was last year.

I've had several conversations about how, in my opinion, he needs to play as a striker and he is working hard and improving.
