D-Day soon for Anderlecht star

Chelsea have long been leading the chase for the 19-year-old, who

is valued at around £20million by his club Anderlecht. He has

also been strongly linked with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool,

Manchester City and Tottenham as he previously revealed he wanted

to move to the Premier League. And Lukaku has revealed that he

looks set to join one of England’s top clubs next week ahead of his

college exams. He also insists he wants to play in the Champions

League – which would rule out Liverpool and Spurs. “I would like my

future settled by next Monday,” said Lukaku, who will play for

Belgium in their Euro 2012 qualifer with Turkey this weekend. “My

college exams start the next day and I don’t want any other

concerns. “I’ll be going to one of the top two or three clubs in

England – or else I’ll stay at Anderlecht. “I want to leave,

because I want to score goals in a stadium where there are 50,000

people, and play in the Champions League.” Chelsea look to be very

much in the driving seat as they are also involved in talks over

Gent star Kevin de Bruyne. As part of the Lukaku deal, they look

set to loan De Bruyne to Anderlecht for at least two seasons.
