Romelu Lukaku is expected to be officially announced by Roma within the next few hours.

The Belgian attacker landed in the Italian capital on Tuesday and was greeted by a crowd of well over 5,000 fans.

Upon completing his club medical later in the evening, Lukaku took the time to address the media for the first time since his return to Italy.

“I’m happy. The way the fans welcomed me really moved me,” Lukaku told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I can’t wait to play for this club.”

Lukaku will likely be unveiled at the Stadio Olimpico on Friday prior to the match with Milan.
