Romelu Lukaku’s Arsenal-supporting brother calls Gunners stingy, but talks up Prem transfer hopes

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is a truly huge bloke, but his younger brother is a very different specimen.

However, little bro Jordan Lukaku – a left-back who is five inches shorter than Romelu and currently playing for Oostende, having failed to make the grade at Anderlecht – reckons he would be suited to the Premier League.

Jordan, 21, has also revealed that he is an Arsenal fan. And he has some strong opinions on the North London club’s transfer policy.

Discussing his own transfer plans, two-time Belgian international Jordan told thesetpieces.com: “Do I see myself as a Premier League-bound? I don’t know, but it’s a league that would suit me. I have always been a fan of Arsenal, but I am mad about every Premier League club as long as the club doesn’t have to fight against relegation.”

He continues: “Arsenal has to go out and spend. Arsenal has become a youth academy for other top clubs.

“When Fabregas became top, he moved to Barcelona. When Van Persie became top and single-handedly guided Arsenal to a top-four finish, he moved to Manchester United. He had begged for reinforcements. Same case with Samir Nasri. He asked for a bigger salary. Arsenal has to be less stingy.”

While he does have a point, bad-mouthing Arsene Wenger’s methods is unlikely to help him get his dream move.

Then again, he doesn’t sound too fussy. As long as you’re not going to be battling the drop, you’re alright by Jordan.

Sorry, Sunderland!

Jordan and Romelu came through at Anderlecht together and the super siblings even linked up on the international scene earlier this year, when left-back Lukaku crossed for goal-machine Lukaku to head home against Portugal.
