Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsbeeck has confirmed that he expects Belgium teenage striker Romelu Lukaku to move to England in the summer and confirmed Spurs as a possible destination.

Tottenham have been linked with “the new Drogba” since last summer but a high price tag for an unproven youngster put off any potential bid for the 17 year-old Belgium international. Clubs in Italy and Spain are watching the progress of Lukaku and so are a host of English clubs including Chelsea and Tottenham. Lukaku is a self confessed Chelsea fan and Chelsea would appeal to him but competition for places in attack since the arrival of Fernando Torres means that Chelsea may not be in the market for a striker.

Van Holsbeeck confirmed that the club turned down a bid from an English club in January believed to be Tottenham for Lukaku but expects the striker to move to England in the summer for a fee of around £26m. Harry Redknapp has been watching the progress of Lukaku and may make a summer swoop.

“Teams like Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool are interested,” he told Sudpresse.

“But if two clubs Manchester enter the race, it might be interesting.

“We know that Real Madrid is interested in all the young talent, but I think his future would rather be in England.

“The transfer should be around €30million.”

  1. get him in no matter what the price.the real the others how its done.are hopefully they will not be there.

  2. Snap him up. Get rid of the shite we have and buy some proper talent.

  3. To much for a boy Wicham is only one inch smaller and a lot cheaper and he is not a Chelsea fan

    • For starters lukaku at the mo is about ten times better and wickham is a liverpool fan, how dirty is that! If carroll cost 35mil then lukaku at 30mil euros is a bargain.

  4. Carrol will end up like Gazza only bigger and if Whickam is a Liverpool fan he will have four lungs like Dutch Kunt has and the rest of his team mates . The new rules will prevent us paying this amount unless we get the keys to the Olympic Stadium.

  5. While 26mil is in reality too much, compared with the prices being paid it’s what we would have to pay to get him and I really want this kid. I would like us to sign both him and Wickham keep Pav (our one world class forward/our only forward who isn’t an absolute embarassment) And sign a cut price experienced striker. Klose on a free if he doesn’t want ridiculous wages would be a good peice of business or a cut price move for Drogba.

    • Pav aint world class mate, he is a donkey. I have lost count of how many chances he has missed and added to this he is lazy.

  6. Davspurs, by your interpretation of new rules, nobody apart from scum could spend that much money. People are living a fantasy world if they think that if we got OS we would have money to burn. Any stadium would be years away whether it be os or ndp! We lost the bid. Now build a bridge. . . and get over it.

  7. Romelu Lukaku and Brazialian youngster Neymar will sign for west ham in the summer.

    • More like rob hulse, paul mcshane, nyron nosworthy and nathan ellington. You will miss out on r.keane as he will only sign if you stay up which you wont. Sorry davethegayhammer.

    • Divthespanner on his drugs again..get a life pal FFS!
