Martinez unfazed by Lukaku comments

Everton manager Roberto Martinez insists the team will not be unsettled by Romelu Lukaku's desire to play in the Champions League.

Lukaku has scored 25 goals in all competitions for Everton this season but he has hinted that he could be on the move in the summer, admitting he would like to play in the Champions League next year.

Everton are 13 points behind fourth-placed Manchester City but they are still in the FA Cup and Martinez is determined not to let Lukaku's become a distraction as they look to end the season with silverware.

"I think it's normal. Every time a player goes away on an international break, we get attracted to their comments," Martinez told his weekly press conference. "Nothing will take away our focus on the next two months of the season. Romelu can help us make it an outstanding season.

"The speculation and talking is because he is always performing well on the pitch. It's not unsettling at all. That should be the aspiration of everyone to be as good as you can.

"Everton want to be in the Champions League. We want to be competing to win titles. We reached the semi-finals of the League Cup. We are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. We need players who can carry the expectations of the club."
