[Romelu Lukaku on himself] I watch every single game in the Premier League – [the full] 90 minutes. I take my time to study and to learn other strikers’ movements and to learn about other defenders. I want to be one of the best in this league, so you can only learn from the best by watching the best. After training I go home and record every game. I have a satellite and I just watch the games. My aim is to go down as one of the greatest

[Romelu Lukaku on taking his mother’s advice to join the Toffees] He (Martinez) actually called me three times and I didn’t pick up on the first two, so I’m glad I answered eventually. I discussed it with him, I spoke to Chelsea, I spoke to my mother, and eventually she said: ‘Go to Everton.’ I haven’t regretted it

[Everton forward Romelu Lukaku talks about his football heroes] Drogba, Anelka, Brazilian Ronaldo, Adriano at his peak at Inter was unbelievable. The step overs from Brazilian Ronaldo, every now and then I’ll do a step over real quick and have a shot. Anelka, his off-the-ball runs, I love Thierry Henry as well, for me those two had the best off-the-ball runs in behind I’ve ever seen. Drogba’s leadership, mentality and his big goals, his big, big goals, and Adriano’s power on the pitch. I’ve never seen something like that, it’s very sad that he ended like he did but for me, at his peak, he took the striker’s dimension to another level

[Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku talks about Thierry Henry’s influence on him as assistant coach of Les Diables Rouges] It’s not easy with him, he’s very demanding. I hadn’t experienced that before. Even when I make a good pass, if the ball bobbles a little bit, he pulls me up on it. I think he sees in me characteristics he also had when he was younger. That’s why he’s so intransigent with me. Thanks to him, I’m more intelligent in my movement, and so I’m caught offside less. He’s also teaching me things about finishing, controlling the ball and how I see the game. Back in the day, he made ten assists a season, I’d like to emulate him

[New Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku talks about the reasoning behind his new number] I always asked my mother what number, and I used to play with the No 10 because my mother’s birthday is on 10 October, so it’s the tenth month of the year. That’s why I played with No 10. I asked for the No 9 because I’m a striker. Strikers play with No 9. It’s a nice number, and I asked the permission of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I want to thank him, as well, for allowing me to wear that number

[Romelu Lukaku has told Thierry Henry that he aims to break the Frenchman’s record of 175 Premier League goals] Now I’m talking to Thierry Henry saying: ‘I’m coming for you on 175!’ I’m laughing saying it to him but, deep down, inside he knows I’m dead serious!

[Romelu Lukaku on Zlatan Ibrahimovic who taught a valuable lesson while at Manchester United] I remember one training session. Because we were both strikers, we were never on the same team and, at one point, there was a 50/50 challenge. He went full-on against me! That is why he changed me. It was an eye-opener. The guy had to fight to be in the position he is in

[Romelu Lukaku claims to be living the dream at Inter, with it always an ambition of his to follow in the footsteps of San Siro legends such as Ronaldo, Christian Vieri and Adriano] To play in Italy and for Inter was a dream I had. The first final I watched as a kid was Inter-Lazio. I wanted to play for Inter, who always had great strikers like Ronaldo, Vieri and Adriano

[The first final I watched as a kid was Inter-Lazio. I wanted to play for Inter, who always had great strikers like Ronaldo, Vieri and Adriano] Everything started in a friendly between Belgium and Italy. I noticed that he played with two attackers, Eder and [Graziano] Pelle, and they created a lot of chances. I understood that with his style of playing, I would have had a lot of chances to score and it would enhance my physical abilities. After the game, we talked a little and he told me that he was going to Chelsea, but it wasn’t possible for me to follow him there. So, I told him that if he went somewhere else in the future, I would follow him
