Kaka rates Lukaku number one striker in the world


Former Brazil midfielder, Kaka, has hailed Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku as the number one striker in the world.

Lukaku returned to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan this summer in a £97m deal.

The 28-year-old scored 64 goals in 95 appearances for the Serie A champions during his two-year spell.

Lukaku has since scored on his second debut against Arsenal and twice against Aston Villa.

Kaka, who won the Ballon d'Or in 2007, told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Romelu is number one, he reminds me of Adriano at his best - physical strength, intelligence, speed.
