Chelsea stunned as Anderlecht inform them of Arsenal Lukaku move

Chelsea are stepping up negotiations with Anderlecht for striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea were in talks with Anderlecht’s top administrator over an £18million move for teenage striker Lukaku.

General manager Herman van Holsbeeck flew to London to try to agree a fee after the 18-year-old — described as the new Didier Drogba —underlined his eagerness to play for his boyhood idols.

Lukaku was hoping the meeting would lead to a deal being concluded, but Van Holsbeeck informed Chelsea that another club had registered an interest.

It's emerged Arsenal have made a £14 million offer for the teen this week.
