Everton Striker Romelu Lukaku Flattered By Juventus Interest

Belgian starlet attracting interest after two seasons out on loan.On-loan Everton striker Romelu Lukaku admits he is flattered by rumoured interest in him from Italian giants Juventus, according to talkSPORT.

The 20-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young strikers in the world, and the decision by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to send him out on loan again this season was met with great surprise.

Lukaku had already shone in a loan spell with West Brom last year, and many expected the Belgian to claim a regular starting place upon his return to the Blues this year, particularly with the likes of Fernando Torres and Demba Ba looking short of form.

The youngster has continued to impress this season at Everton, and with his future at Chelsea looking uncertain he has attracted interest from several top teams, including Borussia Dortmund during the summer.

Juventus were said to be the latest to show a strong interest in signing Lukaku, and the player himself admits it is flattering, though he knows little about how much truth there is to the stories that have emerged.

“I am flattered by the interest of Juventus, but I do not know where these rumours come from,” he said.

Lukaku has four goals in just three games so far for Everton, and scored 17 in the Premier League for West Brom last season.
