Chelsea target Lukaku focused on exams, not football

Anderlecht young gun Romelu Lukaku says he is not close to completing a deal with Chelsea and is currently more focused on his schooling than football.

The 18-year old Belgian is being heavily linked with a summer shift to Stamford Bridge but insists whatever has been reported about him is untrue.

"Hello all, I read a lot in the paper about me these days," he posted on both his Facebook and Twitter pages.

"Some journalists try to sell information they don't always know about. Please know that my current and only focus is ... passing my exams.

"After that I'll have some holiday and will start the pre-season with RSCA (Anderlecht). I'll keep you all posted...thank you for your understanding."
