Romelu Lukaku is Belgian striker who plays for Internazionale. He was born on 13th May 1993 and is renowned for his powerful upper-body strength and pace. Lukaku began his professional career with Anderlecht having signed a contract when he turned 16. The striker was at the club until 2011, when he moved to Chelsea – a club that he had supported since he was a boy. His first season at Chelsea saw him rarely play, resulting in loan moves to West Bromwich Albion and Everton over the next two years where he had a lot of success. In July 2014, Lukaku moved to Everton for a club record fee believed to be nearly £30 million.

Lukaku played for Anderlecht in his youth career and, in 2009, joined their senior team.

The negotiated fee was £13.5 million, and there were rumours that around five million more were given as add-ons. He was with the club until 2014, and in his last two years, they loaned him for one year to West Bromwich Albion (seventeen goals and thirty-five appearances) and Everton (fifteen goals and thirty-one appearances). Between the two loans in 2013, multiple teams were interested in Romelu, such as:
