Linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG in recent months, it had been assumed that the highly-rated Belgian would eventually leave the Toffees in search of regular Champions League football.

But despite being contracted until 2019, the Liverpool Echo writes that Lukaku will commit his long-term future to Ronald Koeman’s men in signing a new club-record extension worth around £100,000 a week.

Attracted by the long-term vision of new billionaire backer Farhad Moshiri, as well as the managerial appointment of Dutchman Koeman, the 23-year-old striker will, at the very least, see his market value swell to in excess of £75 million should he decide to quit the club in the coming seasons.

Former club Chelsea had been particularly keen on securing his services over the summer, but the pacey attacker eventually stayed at the behest of his manager.

“When [Ronald Koeman] called me during the European Championship I told him how I felt,” Lukaku told reporters the time.

“I was surprised how honest he was with me. He was honest in the way that he wanted to work and how he wanted the team to play … He saw me as an important figure and a big character.

“I told him I am not a guy that is going to cause any problems. I am a guy who has to be at 100 per cent and that is what I am going to do. He knew it straight away.”

And now it looks like Everton have secured a major fillip in convincing their star striker to sign a new deal as well.

Major shareholder Moshiri met with the player’s Italian super-agent Mino Raiola ahead of Monday night’s Merseyside derby defeat to Liverpool, with contract discussions believed to have been productive.

All being well, the extension should be signed in early January, with the striker, who has struck 70 goals in 142 appearances for the Blues, set to become the highest earner in the club’s history.
