Everton co-owner Farhad Moshiri has tried to play down Ronald Koeman’s talk about Romelu Lukaku leaving the club.
Earlier in the week, the Toffees boss seemed to suggest the striker, who has scored seven goals in 11 appearances this season, deserved to be at a bigger club.
Koeman said: “If Romelu was to play at Everton until the end of his career, I know he has left something (behind). His potential is greater and higher than Everton, as a final destination.
“Patrick Kluivert was also a striker who was quite young in the picture and had a fantastic career. Eventually Kluivert played for Barcelona, which could happen with Lukaku.”
