Lukaku wants a transfer to Arsenal!
On a day that Arsenal and England International striker Danny Welbeck has been delivered the news that he is expected to miss the next 9 months through injury, Arsenal’s search for a new striker has been kicked into gear! Several names have been passed around on social media, including classics of Benzema and Higuain, as well as Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
The breaking news from today is that Lukaku wants a move to the Arsenal. However, there is of course a catch. It is Romelu’s younger brother Jordan who has spoken about the Gunners and not the Belgium striker that has become a Premier League star. Romelu’s brother Jordan Lukaku is a left back, who currently plays for Oostende in the Belgian division. The 21 year old signed for the club in 2014 after 8 years at Anderlecht and has impressed for his current side. He is yet to leave Belgium, like his brother did when he came to England back in 2011 with Chelsea.
With the transfer window opening fairly soon, it seems Jordan is trying to put himself in the shop window, regardless if he is gathering interest from other clubs or not. The defender seems to be keen on a move to the Premier League and Arsenal in particular. The Metro reported Jordan saying: “Do I see myself as 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.”
Lukaku is calling you out Arsene Wenger, should he make a move? And if we did,would it help persuade his brother to join him at the Emirates?
