Vincent Kompany says that Romelu Lukaku can be one of the best players in the world one day.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has hailed Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku as "one of the biggest talents in Europe" ahead of their clash on Tuesday.

The on-loan Chelsea striker is likely to start for West Bromwich Albion when they travel to the Etihad Stadium to face the FA Cup finalists on Tuesday night.

Ahead of their meeting, Kompany insists that Lukaku can be one of the best in the world one day.

"Romelu is probably one of the biggest talents in Europe at the moment," Kompany told ESPN. "We are very lucky with him, being a very young striker and Christian Benteke.

"We have two unbelievable talents coming through. I am looking forward to playing against him. He will be a world beater in England very soon."

Lukaku has scored 14 times in the Premier League this season.
