Everton manager Roberto Martinez is putting stock in new billionaire investor Farhad Moshiri, saying they’re under no pressure to sell either Lukaku or Stones.
Romelu Lukaku and John Stones have both been linked with big money exit from the club, in favour of European football.
But Martinez said the club were under no pressure to sell anyone.
“We don’t have to cash in and we showed that last summer with John [amid interest from Chelsea],” said Martinez.
“That was a clear example and in the summer we are going to make decisions in the same way.
“The way we work at Everton, everything is going to be about football.
“What Mr Moshiri is bringing is a desire to be the best we can and to be the best in the British game.
“He knows we have to keep the players who are going to take Everton to the next level.”
