  • Ronald Koeman still waiting for update on Ross Barkley's Everton future

And Koeman accepts it will now be tough for Lukaku - who like Barkley has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park - to overhaul England worldwide Kane.

Barkley has 13 months remaining on his current deal but Koeman will not allow him to run those terms down and leave on a free transfer.

Lukaku has hit 24 Premier League goals in the most prolific campaign of his career, with the 24-year-old regularly linked with a return to former club Chelsea.

"In my career, we lost one time Ruud Gullit in PSV [who joined AC Milan in 1987] and everybody was afraid", Koeman said.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman is not confident Ross Barkley will stay with the club but is "not worried" about the situation.

Ronald Koeman is not confident Ross Barkley will sign a new contract at Everton and confirmed the club are looking for replacements. I don't know what will happen after it. I don't expect this.

"I am not anxious because I like to work with players who want to stay".

"I don't need to explain more because if we don't want the player to stay longer we don't offer a new contract. It is after the game, on Monday - then we will know it".

"And - it is not about his decision - we will go on".

Speaking in his pre-match press briefing on Friday, before his side face Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo he said: "If you offer the player a good contract, it means we want him to stay here".

"I said at the time that I was surprised that he nearly made a backwards step", The Liverpool Echo quoted Le Tissier as saying in November 2016. I expect an answer soon after the weekend and not another ten days'.
