LOAN WATCH: Chelsea's Everton ace Lukaku eager for Champions League

Romelu Lukaku says he is determined to play Champions League football as soon as possible.

The Belgian striker is enjoying another successful loan spell away from Chelsea, this time with Everton, following his season-long stint with West Bromwich Albion last term.

Lukaku has netted 26 goals in 54 Premier League appearances away from Stamford Bridge but is now ready to be part of a Champions League and title-challenging squad with the Blues.

"It's time for me to play Champions League, and that's what I want," said the 20-year old.

"I don't want to play my first games in the Champions League when I'm 23, I want it now. I have to show now that I'm ready.

"I want to be a top player and I also think I can shout that out. I've scored a lot of goals, but I haven't won many titles or cups yet. I want to win something."
