Jordan Lukaku undergoes Lazio medical ahead of summer transfer

Lazio are set to complete the signing of Jordan Lukaku after the Belgium defender underwent a medical in Rome.

The full-back, who turns 22 next Monday, arrived in the Eternal City on Thursday after being contacted by the Serie A club just a week ago.

Lazio are reportedly set to pay €5 million to Oostende for his services.

"I'm really happy," he told reporters upon arrival at Rome's Fiumicino airport, reports La Repubblica. "I'd spoken about it with [Radja] Nainggolan and [Dries] Mertens."

The younger brother of Everton forward Romelu Lukaku is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Biancocelesti.

Capped six times by his country, he appeared once for the Red Devils at Euro 2016, in their 3-1 round-of-16 defeat to Wales.

The Belgium national team tweeted their congratulations to Lukaku for his move to Lazio.
