Arsenal eyeing Anderlecht’s Lukaku
London: Premier League giants Arsenal have pitched a 14 million pound bid for Anderlecht’s Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku`s agent Christophe Henrotay met Arsenal officials in London yesterday. He was then expected to fly to Portugal where the Belgian club is based during pre-season, to talk to the teenager, a leading daily reported.
Chelsea were hot favourites to land the 6ft 3in starlet, who is rated one of the top young players in Europe.
Lukaku has hit 31 goals in just 71 games for Anderlecht and has already played nine times for Belgium’s national side.
Anderlecht is reportedly prepared to let him go for less than their 18 million pound asking price.
