Cape Town - Everton striker Romelu Lukaku will sign a new deal with the Premier League side imminently, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Belgium international striker is currently the top scorer in the English top-flight after his incredible four goal haul in the 6-3 victory over Bournemouth last Saturday moved him up to 16 goals in 23 games.

His impressive form brought up questions whether the former Chelsea striker would leave the club at the end of the season after being labeled as 'world class' by his manager Ronald Koeman.

Nonetheless, his agent Raiola has eased the concerned of the Toffees fans by stating the 23-year-old who joined the club in 2014 for £28 million, will remain at Goodison Park.

"There are no problems right now between the player and the club," he told talkSPORT. "Talks are ongoing. He WILL sign."

Since joining the Merseyside club Lukaku has scored 78 goals and registered 27 assists in 152 games.
