Romelu Lukaku: Thinks Europe is the next step for the club

The Chelsea player believes such a target is possible despite the Baggies' mid-season slump which ended with a 2-0 win at Liverpool nine days ago.

The Baggies are currently in ninth spot - just five points off sixth place, which could earn them a Europa League spot.

Lukaku, who has scored 10 goals this season, told the Wolverhampton Express and Star: "Europe is still a target, especially for me.

"I think that's the next step for me and I think it is the next step for the club as well.

"You have to take things one step at a time but if the club gets stronger for next year, then why not?"

Lukaku has already indicated that he would like to return to the Hawthorns for a second season and he admitted: "This year has been wonderful."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
