Arsenal and AC Milan will compete for Lukaku

Next Story

Arsenal will reportedly face competition from AC Milan for the signature of Jordan Lukaku, brother of Chelsea's Romelu, after the Rossoneri declared they were impressed with the 18-year-old.

The Anderlecht youngster, who can play at left-back or left-midfield, recently starred in a youth tournament in Italy that was won by the Belgian side after they thrashed AC Milan 3-0 in the final.

Speaking after the tournament, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport he was "impressed" with Lukaku, and now rival newspaper Corriere dello Sport has reported Galliani has asked a scouting team to monitor his development.

Arsenal had been previously linked with Lukaku, who could be set to follow his older brother out of Anderlecht and to the Premier League, especially as his contract expires this summer.

The under-21 international made six appearances for Anderlecht's first team last season, but he has yet to feature under new boss John van den Brom.
