Romelu Lukaku: Chelsea striker says he is proud of interest from Juventus

Belgium play their opening Group H match against Algeria on Tuesday with Lukaku expected to start.

His impressive form in the build up to the competition saw the Chelsea frontman bag four goals in three friendly games - a hat-trick against Luxembourg and one against Sweden.

Juventus have emerged as the latest club to be linked with a bid to sign the 21-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton.

Despite scoring 33 goals in all competitions over the course of those two years Lukaku is not expected to break into Jose Mourinho's regular starting XI in the upcoming season and he admitted that rumours of the Italian champions' interest was welcome.

He is quoted as saying by Sky Italia: "I'm proud of Juventus' interest in me, but I'm just thinking of Belgium for now."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
