Romelu Lukaku has completed his move to Chelsea, signing a five-year deal with the English Premier League club and instantly welcoming comparisons with Didier Drogba.

The 18-year-old began to be compared to Drogba when tearing through defences with Anderlecht in Belgium, being marked out for his powerful forward play and clinical finishing.

And a delighted Lukaku could not be happier with the "new Didier Drogba" moniker he has been handed upon his official arrival at Stamford Bridge.

"It’s nice, I like it a lot", said the Belgian when asked by Chelsea TV how he felt about being labelled a mini Drogba.

"We have similar playing styles, but I am also very fast.

"I want to learn off him how it is to play here at the Bridge and also how to prepare for games.

"I can also learn off the other strikers and experienced players in the squad. I think if you are clever on and off the pitch you will get accepted and that’s what I want."
