Chelsea loanee Lukaku reveals his other sporting talent ... basketball

Could Everton striker Romelu Lukaku take up basketball in instead.

This season has once again been a magnificent one for Romelu Lukaku - although again the Belgian international has not been doing the business for Chelsea.

Last campaign it was West Bromwich Albion who benefitted from the star’s presence - this season it is Everton who have been feeding off the goals of the powerhouse striker.

Lukaku has bagged an impressive 15 goals in 30 games for The Toffees - but his future at Chelsea is still up in the air.

His relationship with Jose Mourinho seems to be an intriguing one at best - as the debacle over his deadline day loan to Everton proved.

So where he will play his football after the World Cup is a question still up for debate.

But at least he has a career fall-back should he decide that football is no longer his first love.

Lukaku has been showing off his basketball skills via Instagram. Built with the physique to play the high-octane sport Lukaku showed off a video of him sinking buckets left, right and centre on what looked like an arcade game style basketball machine.

He looks good, and his hashtags suggest he fancies his chances at the struggling LA Lakers.

The way they are going Chelsea fans better watch out, they might just roll the dice…
