Lukaku to be ready for Roma debut in mid-September

Andy Mattioli

Romelu Lukaku is expected to be announced by Roma later today.

The Belgian striker landed in Rome on Tuesday afternoon with over 5,000 waiting for him outside Ciampino airport.

After undergoing his club medical, Lukaku returned to his hotel and is now waiting to be officially announced by the Giallorossi.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lukaku selected the same jersey number as he did last season with Inter – 90.

In the meantime, the Italian newspaper reports that it will take approximately 3 weeks to see Lukaku make his debut for Roma.

The attacker hasn’t trained with a team in over two months. His last official match was on 20 June with Belgium and ever since then Lukaku trained on his own, excluded from Chelsea’s first team.

Thus, Lukaku could debut with Roma either with Empoli on 17 September or soon after that.
