Sky Sport: Romelu Lukaku closing in on return vs Bayer Leverkusen

Andy Mattioli

Good news for Daniele De Rossi who should be able to rely on Romelu Lukaku for the upcoming first leg of the Europa League semifinals with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Roma technician is hoping to have Lukaku at his full disposal for Thursday’s fixture after being forced to play the last three games without the Belgian striker.

Lukaku missed the past three games with a muscle injury but is determined to be back in the squad list for the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico.

According to Sky Sport, Lukaku was at Trigoria earlier today, training individually despite the team had been given a day of rest by De Rossi following last night’s 2-2 draw with Napoli.

Lukaku plans to increase the workload and resume group training in the next few days.
