Arsene Wenger is ready to put in a significant January bid to land Anderlecht youngster Romelu Lukaku as he looks to beat big name opposition to sign the teenager. The Arsenal boss will look to complete a deal this month and will then immediately loan back the hot prospect to the Belgian champions.
Real Madrid and Tottenham are also chasing the £16m rated 17 year old but Wenger knows that the fact he is known for blooding youngsters early and has a reputation for turning rough diamonds into the finished article will help him lure Lukaku to north London.
Anderlecht are resigned to losing their prized asset and naturally want to get as much for Romelu Lukaku as possible and to that end Arsenal may even offer a cut of any future sale value so as to convince them to sell to the Gunners.
Wenger is also apparently a fan of Romelu’s brother Jordan who has reportedly already been on trial at the Emirates and may consider a deal for both in order to win the race for a player considered one of the hottest prospects in European football.
Lukaku has netted 33 goals in 77 appearances for his Brussels based side.
