Southampton reportedly keen to land Jordan Lukaku

  Southampton reportedly keen to land Jordan Lukaku Southampton are chasing a deal for Lazio left-back Jordan Lukaku, according to claims from Italy. Two years ago, the Saints were linked with a move for the defender but no transfer ended up materialising, with Lazio having been keen to retain the services of their promising youngster. However, it seems Saints have revived their interest in the player. According to a report from the printed edition of Italian news outlet Il Tempo, as cited and translated by Sport Witness, Mark Hughes’ men have joined the race for Lukaku’s signature. The Belgian international endured a difficult season in Italy. He was used sparingly by Simone Inzaghi and if reports are to be believed, the player is keen to test himself in the Premier League. Southampton are well-stocked with options at left-back but have seen all of Ryan Bertrand, Matt Targett and Sam McQueen linked with moves away in recent months. Lukaku, 23, is predominantly a left-back but is capable of playing in a more advanced role on the flank.

Senad Lulic asserted a firm grip on the left wing-back role last season, forcing Lukaku into a rotational role.

Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku present themselves as the left-sided players already available to Pellegrini at the London Stadium, but the Chilean may be looking to introduce his own players to East London.

Belgium's 23-man World Cup squad confirmed .
Belgium will once again fulfil the role of ‘dark horses’ at the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer and manager Roberto Martinez has selected his 23-man squad. The travelling party oozes with quality in all areas with stars such as Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku all looking to make an impact. Martinez also has depth available to him; the likes of Mousa Dembele, Marouane Fellaini, Youri Tielemans and Michy Batshuayi all not expected to start, but more than capable of making an impact off the bench. An initial 28-man panel revealed on May 21 was cut down by five unfortunate players on June 4 – those being Matz Sels, Christian Kabasele, Laurent Ciman, Romelu’s brother Jordan Lukaku and Christian Benteke. The highest-profile omission from the squad though is AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan purely for tactical reasons, according to manager Martinez, who decided to tell the 28-year-old the disappointing news face-to-face in Italy. However, Martinez’ squad is still a strong one and here it is in full: Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea), Simon Mignolet (Liverpool), Koen Casteels (Wolfsburg). Defenders: Thomas Meunier (Paris Saint-Germain), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham Hotspur), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur), Thomas Vermaelen (Barcelona), Dedryk Boyata (Celtic).
