“He reminds me of Adriano at his best” – Chelsea player hailed as best in the world

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is the best striker in the world and is similar in style to former Brazilian striker Adriano, according to ex-Brazil playmaker Kaka.

Lukaku scored 24 goals for Inter last season to lead them to their first Serie A title in 11 years, finishing 12 points above city rivals and Kaka’s former side AC Milan.

Since joining Chelsea during the summer transfer window, Lukaku has scored three goals in three games for the Blues.

“Romelu is number one, he reminds me of Adriano at his best – physical strength, intelligence, speed,” Kaka told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport via Daily Mail.

“A year ago Milan took the lead [in the title race] after the first derby, then Inter took it back and won deservedly.”
