1 Ronald Koeman has revealed he has no desire to sell Romelu Lukaku this summer, as ‘you don’t sell your best players’ when manager of a club.The Dutchman was appointed Goodison Park boss earlier this week, replacing Roberto Martinez, with the aim to mould a promising group of players into one of the best teams in the Premier League.His first job is to keep hold of his promising starlets; the most important being John Stones, Ross Barkley, and the aforementioned Lukaku.Whilst the first two seem content to remain on Merseyside, Belgian forward Lukaku has voiced his desire to join a club who are able to win silverware.His goal record makes him a keen target for a number of sides – Chelsea and Manchester United included – but Koeman has revealed he will have meetings to convince his ‘best players’ to remain at Goodison Park.The 53-year-old said: “I have had that experience in my last two years, always a lot of interest in players.“Like everybody, we like to keep all these key players, because you don’t sell your best players. But that is about meetings I will have with these kind of players and then we will see what happens.”Koeman left Southampton after two years, and he has admitted that Everton’s ambition to grow and develop into a European force was one of the reasons he left the South Coast for the North West of England.He added: “Always the most important (thing) is if they show that ambition to grow, and everybody knows the history of Everton.“It is a big history and it is nice to be part of that, to win, to play European Cup football, to win titles.“Everybody at the club is ready to take the next step and I am one of them. From the start, when we had the discussions about Everton, (everyone) was lovely.“Everyone is hungry from the beginning – the people in the club, the fans – to come back and put Everton in a place where they need to stay. We will do everything to take the next step.” Ronald Koeman wants Romelu Lukaku to stay at Everton
