Liverpool starlet target Romelu Lukaku could stay in Belgium despite interest from Barclays Premier League outfits.

The Anderlecht striker has been linked with the cream of Europe as clubs continue to monitor the player's progress, with Liverpool thought to be one of those keeping tabs.

It was reported less than a fortnight ago that Damien Comolli, director of football strategy at Anfield, had approached the Belgian Pro League champions with regards to a move for the player. It was thought that Liverpool would have to pay in the region of £25 million for the player.

Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City have also been linked with the player, but representative David Steegan hinted that the player could stay in his homeland despite previous claims that he would make a move.

"There is no talk with Manchester City and you can quote me on that," talkSPORT reports that Steegan said.

"In the summer? Anything is possible but there is nothing definite yet. He is very young - so he might decide to stay for a while yet."


Liverpool have been linked with a number of attacking players in the transfer window as Dalglish looks to strengthen his forward options at the club.

A foil for Spanish star Fernando Torres i thought to be his January priority, although with only one week remaining in the transfer window the Reds will have to work fast to secure a deal for any player.

Luis Suarez is thought to be closest of all the target to making a Liverpool switch, although the move appears to have stalled as the Merseysiders attempt to negotiate a lower fee.

17-year-old Lukaku now appears off the radar for Liverpool, and the Belgian international could continue to develop his skills outside of the top European leagues.
