Romelu Menama Lukaku (born 13 May 1993) is a Belgian footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Everton on loan from Chelsea and the Belgium national team. He started his career with local side Rupel Boom, before being scouted and joining Lierse. He played well and attracted many clubs to his talents. He alerted Anderlecht and signed for the Belgian Pro League side in 2006.

Lukaku continued his development with Anderlecht and made his professional debut while still at school at the age of 16. Whilst playing for Anderlecht, he became the 2009–10 top scorer in Belgium as Anderlecht won the Belgian championship, and won the Belgian Ebony Shoe in 2011. In the 2011 summer transfer window, Lukaku signed for English Premier League club Chelsea for an undisclosed fee, penning a five-year contract with the London club.

In January 2014, he was named by The Guardian as one of the ten most promising young players in Europe.
