Anderlecht forward Romelu Lukaku could be subject to a bid from Newcastle United, reports Metro.

The 17-year-old's reputation as one of the hottest properties in Europe has led to links with a host of Europe's big clubs.

Newcastle are the latest to join the list that contains both Tottenham Hotspur, who were thought to be the front-runners for the forward, and big spenders Chelsea.

Manager Alan Pardew is expected to be given all of the £35 million recouped from the sale of Andy Carroll, this summer, to try and find a replacement forward, and Lakaku at just 17 and standing at 6ft 3in would be the ideal replacement or Newcastle.


However they face competition from Tottenham, who may be looking to replace either Robbie Keane or Roman Pavlyuchenko who are set to leave this summer, while Chelsea could lose Didier Drogba this summer as well.

The stumbling block for Newcastle may be the fact they can't offer the Belgian Champions League football, but Tottenham, who are far from guaranteed a return to the competition after falling off the pace in the race for the top four.

Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea are liable to be able to offer Lukaku such luxeries and may take the lead in the race to sign the striker.
