Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku is more likely than ever to head to Chelsea next season, after The Sun reported that Barcelona have turned their attentions away from the starlet.

Reports are circulating that Lukaku, who has been dubbed the new Drogba for his amazing talent at such a young age, was being chased by Pep Guardiola. But now The Sun is claiming that Guardiola would prefer to sign Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi.


Chelsea have long been linked to the 17 year old wonderkid, and Lukaku has recently made his intentions to move to the Barclays Premier League very clear.

"My style is best suited to the English Premier League, so a move to England is more likely than a switch to Spain or anywhere else in Europe,” the Chelsea target said.

And with 35 goals in 84 games for Anderlecht, Lukaku looks to have a future full of potential, just as Chelsea striker Drogba did at his age.

"I'm flattered to be compared to a great striker like Didier but I insist on being my own player,” Lukaku said, in regards to the comparisons with the Chelsea star.
