Agent: Lukaku on course for PL

BY foxsports • May 11, 2011

The 17-year-old is one of the most sought-after players in world football, and it has long been stated that the Premier League would be his destination. Anderlecht look ready to sell this summer, with Chelsea leading the race for his signature - but Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all said to be keen on securing his services. His agent Christophe Henrotay spoke to the Italian media, after Roma were linked with a possible swoop. "I know nothing of Roma, so I could not confirm whether they have been watching him or not," Henrotay told Calciomercatoweb. "I can confirm that the English clubs are in pole position, but we have not already concluded an agreement with a particular team. "We have talked with several teams, and their names are no secret. "With his physical and technical characteristics, Lukaku would be perfect for the English football, but, again, there is still nothing done. At the end of the season, we'll see what happens." Lukaku won the Belgian Ebony Shoe award earlier this week, which is a prestigious prize handed to the best player in the Jupiler League with African roots. Previous winners include Marouane Fellaini, Vincent Kompany, Celestine Babayaro, Mido and Daniel Amokachi.
