Liverpool launching £20M bid for Anderlecht sensation Lukaku

Liverpool are launching a bid for Anderlecht superkid Romelu Lukaku.

The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool are hoping £20 million will be enough to land the teen ahead of Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Kop talent-hunter Damien Comolli is understood to have approached Anderlecht about the 17-year-old striker who already has eight caps for his country.

The Reds are pulling out all the stops to sign him - with a £15m initial fee the starting point rising to more than £20m with performance-related add-ons.

That's big money for Liverpool's new owner John Henry, head of the Fenway Sports Group, but the Anfield hierarchy recognise they have to start revamping their squad - and fast.
