Jordan Lukaku and Tottenham Hotspur links are all around Belgium on Wednesday, but nobody appears to be taking them overly seriously.
Different websites credit different places, with StarSports (an Indian sport website) getting some of the glory, as well as Sky Sports.
The Belgium media cover Tottenham an awful lot, and with some joy, given the presence of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Mousa Dembele. The idea of another Belgian joining so soon after Nacer Chadli left for West Brom is certainly welcome, so they’d like to believe it, but don’t appear able to.
Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad say it would be a nice if the claims were true but they’d find it ‘very surprising’ if Lazio’s Lukaku is on Tottenham’s wish-list.
Voetbal Nieuws aren’t convinced either and point out that the Sky report said Lukaku had moved to Lazio from Anderlecht, when in fact the transfer had been from Oostende. They say to take a pinch of salt over the story.
