If your first look at Romelu Lukaku today wasn't enough to make you dream about what could be in store for the next 15 years or so, the fact that he's now trying to help us recruit one of the top young talents in Europe should. In a recent interview, some questions about his family came up. When on the topic of younger brother Jordan, Lukaku had this to say:

I hope my brother will play for Chelsea one day, technically he is better than me. He is a left winger who is very skilful and strong and it is our dream to play in the same team together.

The two already played together at RSC Anderlecht in the pre-season (I have video highlights of that game after the jump), and the 6'2" 16 year old winger will likely be making his full first team debut in the very near future. It seems like we're hell bent on bringing the entire future Belgian national team to London, so hopefully that fact combined with big brother Lukaku urging him to come will result in me having to order a second Lukaku jersey down the road. He's definitely one to keep an eye on, and as he starts to see some first team action I'm sure we'll profile him here.
