Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has joined AS Roma on loan.
The big centre-forward spent last season with Inter Milan.
“The welcome that this club and these fans gave me thrilled me and represents a further incentive to give everything for my new team,” Lukaku told Roma’s official website. “I breathed in the atmosphere of the Olympic Stadium as an opponent, I felt the warmth of the Roman fans and today it is nice to know I’m part of it.

“I had the opportunity to speak with the owners in recent days and I was struck by their ambition. Now we have to work, be humble and grow game after game – for my part, I can’t wait to make myself available to my teammates, inside and out off the field.”
