Since Romelu Lukaku's deadline day loan move from Chelsea to Everton, there's been plenty of talk over whether Jose Mourinho made a blunder by letting him go.

The Belgian striker has netted four goals in four games for Everton, and during last season's loan spell at West Bromwich Albion he proved his worth in English football with 17 goals.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is the latest to praise Lukaku's undeniable ability, saying players like him are often hard to come by.

As quoted by The Sun, Martinez heaped the praise high.

"He's not a typical No.9, he's more than that," the Toffees boss commented. "He has an incredible awareness and his link-up play with Ross Barkley is not coincidence.

"He is a modern target man.

"There aren't many of that type around - you have the clever sort with good mobility and space awareness.

"Then you've got the powerful one and he is a mixture, which is exciting.

"He can be as good as he wants to be."

Martinez is seemingly delighted with the latest arrival to Goodison Park, who has the potential to grow as a player.

Since linking with the Toffees, Lukaku has done just that - he has already played two 90 minute run-outs for Everton.

Prior to the transfer, the 20-year-old had only taken two 90 minute run-outs in two years.

Martinez thinks it is important that Lukaku has already played two Everton, and added: "It is like seeing a young man who has now become a proper man."

Lukaku is currently away with Belgium on 2014 World Cup qualifying duty.
