The 19-year old Belgian, who is on a season-long loan at West Bromwich Albion, has constantly been compared to the departed Ivorian ace but insists that he wants to be his own man and make his own mark on the game.
“Didier and I have a similar playing style, but I don't think he would have wanted to be compared to someone when he was young," Lukaku told Sky Sports.
"Every player wants to be their own person, their own personality. I don't want to be the new anyone.
"At first it was OK – but now I'm bored of it. It isn't necessary and I don't like it now.
"I have my father's surname, I am Romelu Lukaku – I’m not anybody else. This is my own name and the name I want people to remember."
