According to talkSPORT‘s over-worked ‘flagrant horsesh*t dressed up as news’ department, Arsenal have won the race to sign Anderlecht’s uber-starlet Romelu Lukaku after having their £12.5 million bid accepted yesterday.

The 17-year-old striker is being monitored by most of European football’s biggest hitters (with Chelsea and Real Madrid said to be very keen on acquiring his services asap), and this is why…

Shit. Hot.

You can see why all-and-sundry are referring to him as ‘the new Didier Drogba‘. He scores shedloads of goals, has the direct style, the swagger, the power, the pace, the Chelsea shirt…

Word is that the Gunners are also trying to forge a deal with the Belgian club for Lukaku’s younger brother, 16-year-old Jordan.
