Diet Drogba arrives in London for medical.

Lukaku Arrives in London for Chelsea Medical.
What do you do when your star forward begins to reach the end of his career?? Go out and sign a player who not only plays the exact same role, but looks exactly like him. 18-year old Belgium footballing prodigy Romelu Lukaku now looks set to seal a move to the Bridge, as Chelsea stalwart, Didier Drogba reaches the end of his career. Billed as Drogba, lite, diet, mini, pint-sized, whatever the adjective, Lukaku looks set to replace the Ivorian at Stamfor Bridge. He may be youthful in age, but not stature, standing 6'3. Lukaku has terrorized defenses in the Belgium Jupiter League, prompting this move to the "Big Time." Chelsea's Manager Andre Villa-Boas has yet to make a marquee signing since being instated manager, losing the battle for recent PSG signee Javier Pastore, and failing to coax Luka Modric from Redknapp's clutches. This move, if on...shows intent. Going for Lukaku is a move for youth and the future, but also for the present, as Lukaku's physical presence can surly impose upon English back-lines. 
Eden Hazard has been know to be Hazardous to defenses.

Lukaku is one of the many talented specimens to emerge from Belgium in the last few years. This crop includes players' like Eden Hazard, who won the League 1 with Lille last season. A player that has been tapped up by European powerhouses Real Madrid amongst others, but looks set to stay and slug it out in the Champion's League with the French side. Everton's aggressive, disco throwback midfielder Marouane Fellaini has made a name for himself in the Premier League, for his tenacity in a tackle the  and amount of yellow cards he's received. Steven Defour is another that seemed to flirt with the idea of coming to the Premier League, as United showed interest in the Standard Liege midfielder, but nothing materialized. A player who racked up 13 goals last season from midfield, ran the center of the park with his pin-point passing accuracy and his keen awareness of space. With the recent departure of Paul Scholes, Sir Alex might want to re-up his effort to sign the Belgium. Current EPL player's Vincent Kompany and Thomas Vermaelen, also grace the Belgium squad that come Brazil 2014, will be a tour de force in world football. Not only are these players making a strong impact around Europe at the moment, but their success dosne;t look like slowing any time soon as non of the players' mentioned  are over the age of 25.
