Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he's proud to be linked with a move to Italian giants Juventus. 

As reported by, the Belgian forward has insisted, however, that he's concentrating on his World Cup adventure with Belgium.

The forward looks set to play a key role for the Red Devils in the Brazil tournament, with the international outfit set to play their first fixture against Algeria tomorrow afternoon.

And Lukaku will certainly be out to impress, as speculation regarding his future continues. Italian champions Juventus certainly appear to be interested in the player's signature, and the forward has responded to the transfer link.

Speaking to Sky Italia, Lukaku said: "I'm proud of Juventus' interest for me, but I just think of Belgium now.

Lukaku, however, has been the subject of interest from a number of Europe's elite clubs in recent time, with reports late last month indicating that German outfit Borussia Dortmund were ready to make a £20 million swoop for the player.

It remains to be seen as to whether Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho opts to sell the forward in the transfer window, but he would certainly represent a fine signing for potential suitors. 

With Diego Costa set to join Chelsea in the near future, it won't be easy for Lukaku to claim a place in Jose Mourinho's starting XI next term. 

Fernando Torres could also stay on at Stamford Bridge for the 2014/15 season, meaning Lukaku will have it all to do in order to force his way into the Blues boss' thinking. 

Many fans will argue, however, that he's good enough to prove himself at the Bridge. And they may well be right. Over the past couple of seasons, Lukaku has proved his credentials in England's elite division, and deserves a chance to prove himself at a top club. 

If Mourinho isn't willing to give him first team football at Chelsea, then the forward will have the opportunity to shine on Europe's elite stage at another club. 

Blues fans will just be hoping that Lukaku doesn't come back to haunt them in years to come. At just 21-years-old, Lukaku has plenty of time on his side, and could become a major force in world football. 

Chelsea fans will certainly be interested spectators as Lukaku and Hazard take on Algeria tomorrow.
