Note: These are temporary stats, they will be given a revise in the middle of the season to enpicture Lukaku even clearer.
Romelu Lukaku is Anderlecht's big (really, he is!) coming star. Just 16 years of age and he's already catching minutes every week, starting in Anderlecht's last game against Germinal. Many have compared him to Drogba and the likeness in playing style is really frightening, the young Belgian perhaps having even more potential than the Chelsea star.
With his 190 centimetres, 94 kilograms and shoesize 49; Romelu is a monster physically. He can barge almost any player off the ball and doesn't have trouble handling physically present centrebacks. Even though he has this pure strength, he'll have to get more experience to use his bodyside more efficiently though I'm sure this will come with time.
Not only is Lukaku a really strong athlete, he also has the finishing skills and functional technique that go with top class young talents. In front of goal, he's absolutely lethal (hence the star) and I believe he could even get higher if I didn't try to be so careful with the ratings of his finishing ability. He also has quite a good header for a kid his age, although his size does help him an awful lot in this. His first touch is also very good and as I said, he has great functional technique. You won't see him dribble past 5 men but he can trap a ball very well and has the ability to round a goalkeeper or defender on his way to goal.
