The striker spoke to journalists from the ECHO and the national press to promote Everton in the Community鈥檚 girls pan-disability programme as part of his role as a Kick It Out 鈥楴ext 20鈥?ambassador.
But his as yet unsigned new deal and what the future holds was the compelling topic of conversation.
Asked if he can go on to become the best striker in the world, he said: "Definitely. Definitely. But to do that, you need the platform to show yourself.
"Then you are talking about Champions League and whatever types of games. I don鈥檛 want to go into details on that but you just follow the path that is in front of you. Whatever type of situation, I just try to deliver.
"I鈥檓 close. Close. I鈥檓 close. At the minute I am one of the best strikers in the league."
Asked about the level of ambition at Goodison, the 23-year-old said: "You have to have the attitude, you have to. Everton as a football club has a great history right.
"But the future has to be written. You get me?"

The striker then went on to discuss players the club has failed to sign, saying: "Obviously stuff is changing and stuff is happening, but like I said there were some players that we could have got. That I knew the club could have got and they didn鈥檛 get. And they are playing in this league.
"I am not saying names, but they are doing well.
"It is a little bit frustrating but, at the end of the day, we have fantastic players. We cannot look at the others, we can only look at ourselves. We are the only ones to blame. We cannot blame the fans. We cannot blame the manager."
Fans had mixed feelings following his comments...
Many readers agreed with the Blues player.
Nick Spano on Facebook said: "I don't blame him. Seriously how many 23 year olds in his class have played little to no champions league football? He's along with the fans are entitled to demand champions league football after all we've been 100% promised it since we hired Martinez.."
Another Facebook comment, from Ste Perryman, said: "Well said Rom. He has given us a good few years. We had the opportunity last summer to make a massive statement and didn't. Now we may pay the price for that. Good luck Rom. Hope he stays, but can't hold it against him if he goes. NSNO"
Kipped McNamara said: "In fairness, the lad does make some valid points....I believe many of us thought we were dragging our feet when it came to buying new quality players during the windows."
Chris Laffey tweeted: "Can we really disagree with anything he's saying? He's only saying what we all think."
John Brady also tweeted: "100% agree with what he's saying! What all us blues are crying out for, let's hope Moshiri spends big this summer"
A few readers felt like he could do more for the club.
Madmarvel left this comment: "I like that he's ambitious, we all are and want to be in champions league, but he can't say he hasn't been given the chances to get us in the champions league, he has missed chances in crucial games that could've got us more points, he would have to put those crucial chances away for a champions league club or he will be dropped, so really he should just get his head down, and get on with scoring as many goals as possible instead of always distracting himself by looking elsewhere all the time, as this is taking his focus off the last part of the season."
Cliff Rudkin posted: "Still under contract so make him stay another year and show us what he's made of . If it doesn't happens then he can leave . Not rocket science. Plus if he sulks he can play for the 23s"
Some readers weren't as sympathetic with the striker.
Babdab left this comment on the full transcript of the interview : "Can't believe he thinks he's that good! Give me rashford any day...."
Babdad then left another comment: "Me... me... me and it's all about me!! By the way, your not good enough for top champions league teams... no chance, keep dreaming!"
Michael Kobylko said: "He's basically copied and pasted Rooney's moan from a few seasons back."
