Can Liverpool Beat Chelsea And Real Madrid To Land Another Striker?

Liverpool have joined Chelsea, Real Madrid and a host of other clubs in the chase to sign 17-year-old striker Romelu Lukaku.

Currently playing for Anderlecht, Lukaku follows an exceptional season which saw the teen score 15 goals in 25 appearances taking the accolade of top scorer of the Jupiler Pro league. All of this before the player’s 17th birthday.

Dubbed “the next Drogba,” Lukaku is a rarity in youth players already possessing both the powerful physical attributes and footballing skills necessary to make a top class goalscorer. The forward’s agent stated the player’s intentions for the near future:

“The mere fact that I am in contact with Real Madrid does not mean that Romelu will go to the Spanish club.

Much depends on the performances of Anderlecht in the Champions League. If the Belgians qualify, he will not leave this season. Still, he is too young to play for a club like Real Madrid.”

There is also interest from Liverpool, Chelsea and all the great European clubs, but it’s too soon.”
