Cape Town - The father of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku believes his son is ready for a move to a top European club, in particular Bayern Munich or Manchester United.

The 22-year-old Belgian, who joined the Toffees in a £28m deal from Chelsea in 2014, has scored 25 goals in 36 appearances this season for the Merseyside club.

The powerful forward has been linked with a host of top European clubs as a result, and Roger Lukaku has no doubts about his son's readiness.

"I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munchen, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United," Lukaku Sr. told Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws.

"I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern. Manchester United is a team under construction with no real focus.

"Bayern is a machine where he can rotate well. The only condition is if Robert Lewandowski leaves."
