Morrison: Lukaku will get better if he avoids Chelsea return

Romelu Lukaku will continue to improve as a striker - if he avoids a return to Chelsea according to West Brom's James Morrison.

Lukaku has impressed while on loan at the Hawthorns this season, scoring 12 goals to help the Baggies claim a place in the top half of the Premier League.

The Belgian forward has previously admitted he would like to remain with the Baggies next season in order to aid his development.

Now his West Brom team-mate Morrison has urged him to stay put for next season, saying he would definitely benefit from another season with the Midlands club.

"Will he benefit from another season at West Brom? Definitely," he said. "You think how young he is for such a big unit," Morrison told reporters. "He is a pleasure to have and I think he will be even better next season.

"He's got a lot of hard work to go but I'm sure he is going to be a top player. I'm sure Chelsea are going to develop him."

Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht for a reported fee of £20 million in 2011.

Although he struggled to make an impression at Stamford Bridge initially, Morrison believes the 19-year-old is now showing his true potential as West Brom push for European football.

"Romelu's goals are one of the reasons we are where we are,' he said. 

"Hopefully the club can get the deal sorted [for next season]. "He is big and strong and scores goals and is quick and powerful. He is a handful for anyone."

"Probably the manager will realise that and hopefully we can get there and build a squad for it."
