Romelu Lukaku: Has scored 13 goals for West Brom this season

Lukaku scored his 13th goal of the campaign during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Swansea to keep alive Albion's hopes of securing a European spot.

And Morrison insists Albion should pull out all the stops to try and get the on-loan Chelsea striker back at The Hawthorns next term.

Morrison knows the 19-year-old will leave a big hole to fill should he be recalled by the Blues next season.

Morrison said: "Romelu's goals are one of the reasons we are where we are. Hopefully the club can get the deal sorted. He is a pleasure to have and I think he will be even better next season.

"Will he benefit from another season at West Brom? Definitely. You think how young he is for such a big unit.

"He's got a lot of hard work to go but I'm sure he is going to be a top player. I'm sure Chelsea are going to develop him.

"He is big and strong and scores goals and is quick and powerful. He is a handful for anyone."

Morrison also believes Albion will need to strengthen their squad if they qualify for Europe.

He said: "We will need some players in if we are going to (play in Europe).

"You saw what we were like in December and January when we couldn't pick a win up (through players missing).

"Probably the manager will realise that and hopefully we can get there and build a squad for it."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
