"I dreamed to play here since I was 10 years old, thinking about shaking hands with all those players like John Terry and Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba, it's amazing to arrive here in a big club with big ambition.

"It was just what I was searching for," he added.

Lukaku has reportedly cost the Blues £18m.
