Belgian strikers Kevin De Bruyne and Lukaku will complete their moves to Chelsea, reports The Metro.

The 19-year-old De Bryne helped Genk towards the Belgian league title last season and has claimed that a move to Stamford Bridge would be his first choice.

Lukaku meanwhile is still negotiating a deal with the west-Londoners that is expected to be completed before the end of the transfer window.

Herman van Holsbeeck, general manager of Lukaku's club Genk told Sky Sports: "There is still a long way to go in the negotiations (for Lukaku).

"We are indeed negotiating with Chelsea, but there are other clubs we are talking to.


"It (a deal) could happen in the next half hour, it could take until August 31, that is football."

On De Bruyne, his agent, Patrick de Koster, says the forward wants to make the switch.

"Kevin is ready to step forward in his career now, he has done what he needs to at Genk and is ready for the next step," he said.

"And Kevin wants to move to England.

"He knows Chelsea have been following him for a long time, and Chelsea would be his first choice, I had meetings with other clubs - although nothing more than on a scouting level, but he knows what can be achieved at Chelsea."
