Lukaku recommends brother signing

Published Add your comment

Should Andre Villas-Boas wish to bring more players to Stamford Bridge before the close of the transfer window, then Chelsea new boy Romelu Lukaku knows the ideal candidate - his younger brother Jordan!

Romelu signed for Chelsea from Anderlecht for a fee in the region of £18 million earlier this month, and made his debut for the Blues in Saturday's victory over Norwich.

And, now, having fulfilled the long-held ambition of joining Chelsea, the 18-year-old striker is hoping another dream comes true - that he and his brother can work in tandem in west London.

Although it may seem a slightly ambitious dream, the good news for Chelsea is that 16-year-old Jordan is better than his elder sibling - at least that's according to Romelu himself.


“I hope my brother will play for Chelsea one day,” said Romelu. “Technically he is better than me. He is a left winger who is very skilful and strong and it is our dream to play in the same team together.”

Chelsea, meanwhile, are indeed expected to make some significant moves before the transfer deadline, which closes on Wednesday night.

The Blues are reportedly in discussions with Porto over the potential signing of full-back Alvaro Peirera, while they have also been linked with a shock bid for Franck Ribery.
