Romelu Lukaku says he’s talking with his next club, and hinted that it’s in England.

Everton’s star striker also said he wants to improve and play in the Champions League, narrowing his list of potential destinations to Manchester United, Liverpool, Man City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea.

Logic says the move will neither be to Merseyside rivals Liverpool nor striker-content Manchester City, leaving old home Chelsea, Spurs, and Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

Here’s what Lukaku said Monday:

“I know what’s happening, but I can’t tell you anything more,” he added to journalists after Belgium beat the Czech Republic in a friendly in Brussels.

“What I would like most is to play in the Champions League and try to win the Premier League once. Or better – a few times.”

The bettors have Lukaku even money to join Chelsea, and slightly worse odds to join United. It’s usually a poor idea to go against the bookies, but Lukaku would slide in neatly in the Zlatan Ibrahimovic role at Old Trafford. We’ll look there first.
