Chelsea prodigy’s brother to join European giant?

Italian giants AC Milan are keeping tabs on 18-year old Jordan Lukaku, brother of Chelsea forward Romelu, according to TalkSport.

The sibling of the Premier League striker currently plays for Belgian outfit RSC Anderlecht, and impressed Rossoneri coaches whilst playing in an Italian youth tournament.

Footsteps

The defender followed in his brother’s footsteps upon signing for Anderlecht in 2011, and like Romelu has been successful in attracting attention from a big European club.

Jordan, who is known to be a surprise fan of Championship side Crystal Palace, travelled with the Belgian club side’s youth team to play at an Italian academy tournament earlier this season.

Playing in his favoured left-back position, the starlet put in an impressive showing against Milan’s own youngsters, a performance that the Italian club’s CEO Adriano Gallani witnessed.

Gallani is now reportedly heading enquiries into a move for the young full-back, who has already featured for the Beilgian under-21 team.

Family ties

If Jordan does make a move to Italy, it would be Anderlecht’s second offloading of a Lukaku brother, whose father was also a professional footballer, representing Zaire (DRC).

Romelu will return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, when his loan at West Bromwich Albion ends.
