Henry, Ronaldo, Drogba, Torres are the players I look up to - Everton striker Lukaku

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has named an abundance of unlimited quality among the group of players that he considers his main influences.

The 23-year-old Belgian revealed to Thierry Henry in an interview with Sky Sports that some of the best strikers of the 1990s and 2000s serve as his major source of inspiration.

"You (Henry), Ronaldo, [Nicolas] Anelka, [Didier] Drogba, [Samuel] Eto'o, [Fernando] Torres," he said.

"I try to see the strongest points from you guys and where I can pick a little bit and work it into my training.

"It takes a lot of time, but if I can have the same career that one of you guys had, then I would be very proud of myself.

"I have a love for the game, I love watching, studying and working hard, and if you have that inside of you the rest comes naturally and it's easy to learn something different."
