Romelu Lukaku isn't exactly sure where he'll end up, but it's beginning to sound like it will be England.

According to ESPNsoccernet, the 17-year-old Anderlecht striker is can see himself playing in England over Spain.

"I see England as more likely than Spain," referring to Chelsea and Real Madrid, respectively.

Lukaku has been sought by Premier League clubs since he was only an early teenager.

"Chelsea and Arsenal tried to sign me when I was 13,14," he said. "Chelsea is my favorite team."

Despite having a personal favorite, Lukaku acknowledged that there are more teams involved than just Chelsea and Real Madrid.

?There is also Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. These big five are very interesting. Tottenham are also a good club.?

Just a week ago, it was reported that Liverpool may be working on a bid of almost $32 million (£20 million) for the youngster.

He later added, ?If I see the games and some action in the Premier League, with my qualities I think I can play there.? In the Premier League, he thinks he will best improve.

Even Christiano Ronaldo, who Lukaku looks up to, had something to say of the young phenom, describing him as ?really fantastic.?

A highly promising Lukaku would be a remarkable signing for the Liverpool club.
