Belgium begin their World Cup campaign on Tuesday against Algeria in Group H with Lukaku expected to lead the line for the Europeans, and his red hot form in front of goal before the tournament saw him bag a hat-trick against Luxembourg and one against Sweden.

Having recently admitted that the time is right for him to leave the west London club a queue of interested parties has subsequently formed in the hope of landing his signature.

Everton, where he spent last season on loan, are keen to bring him back to the club, but it is Juventus who are the latest to declare an interest in his services.

Despite scoring 33 goals in all competitions over the course of those two years Lukaku is not expected to break into Jose Mourinho's regular starting XI in the upcoming season and he admitted that rumours of the Italian champions' interest was welcome.

"I'm proud of Juventus' interest in me, but I'm just thinking of Belgium for now," he said.
