Motherwell's on-loan striker Lukas Jutkiewicz hopes Everton do not price him out of a permanent move to Fir Park.
The talented 21-year-old has impressed for Well this season with 10 goals in 30 SPL appearances.
Jutkiewicz has enjoyed regular football for Craig Brown's side and is not enthused by the prospect of being a squad player at Everton.
However, he does have a year left on his Toffees contract and he is hoping the club set a reasonable figure for his services this summer.
"It would be a shame if Everton were to price me out of a move here," explained Jutkiewicz to the Daily Record.
"It wouldn't make sense to ask too much because I'm obviously out of contract next year.
"I'd love to see myself here. Fingers crossed that can happen. Unfortunately it's not completely in my hands, having a year on my contract.
"I expect I'll be having a meeting with the manager at the end of the season to see exactly what his plans are."
