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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
