With both of the Lukaku brothers in the Belgium squad at Euro 2016, Arsenal fans will be hoping to get a good luck at both of these players that have been linked with a possible summer move to north London in a number of Arsenal transfer rumours.
There is a chance, however, that the striker Romelu and his younger brother Jordan who is a left back, could start their second game today against Ireland on the bench. The young defender who currently plays his club football for Oostende is yet to feature at the tournament as the Tottenham player Jan Vertonghen is in front of him in the pecking order.
Jordan has made no secret of his wish to play for Arsenal but unless he gets to play for Belgium I cannot see Arsene Wenger taking a risk on him, at least not yet. His brother’s situation is different as he came into the competition as the first choice centre forward ahead of Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi and the Liverpool pair Divock Origi and Christian Benteke, who has been linked with Arsenal himself a lot in the past.
The Everton forward’s place in the starting line up is under threat, though, after Belgium lost their opening game to Italy with a pretty toothless performance. The Belgian boss Marc Wilmots has spoken about changing his attack and that sounds like bad news for Lukaku but we will have to wait and see.
If Benteke does start and play well, however, is there still a chance that he could be an Arsenal target once more?
