Romelu Lukaku spent two years in Italy before he made a return to the Premier League, and the Belgian dominated the Italian Serie A in his two seasons there.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that his Italian teammates spoke highly of Lukaku before he joined the club.

Jorginho has been impressed with the ability and personality of the club record signing, and he has revealed how the 28-year-old striker has helped the team.

“They (Italy team-mates who played with Lukaku) said that he works a lot, he can help a lot, he tries to talk, he works hard,” Jorginho explained.

“We are really happy that he is really helping everyone.

“That’s what everyone does here, we try to help each other — and he came with the right mentality, working and trying to help.

“So I’m really happy for him as well because he works so hard during training and deserves every goal. A big impact is well deserved.”
