Spurs enter race to sign Belgian Wonderkid

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are weighing up a move for Anderlect teenager Romelo Lukaku. Tottenham are in good company as Real Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal and European Champions Inter Milan are also keeping tabs on the powerful 17-year-old striker.

Tottenham are rumoured to have sounded out the Belgian club to try and make the first move for the youngster, who has already been capped at international level, in an attempt to beat rivals to his signature.

Lukaku netted 18 times in 43 games for Anderlecht last season, and has already bagged seven goals in sixteen games this term. It is this impressive form that has attracted Spurs and many of Europe's elite clubs.

Anderlecht have already put a £20 million price tag on the player labelled the new 'Didier Drogba' and Real Madrid going all out to sign him with Jose Mourinho getting involved personally. He is believed to have identified similarities to Drogba's game and think's he can turn him into one of the best strikers in the world - as he did with Drogba at Tottenham's rivals Chelsea.

Lukaku’s agent Christophe Henrotay said: “Many clubs are interested and the decision is not easy. It’s necessary to find the best option and that’s not just about the financial issue.” Any potential move to White Hart Lane will likely have to wait until the summer, when he will complete his studies.
