Romelu Lukaku says he has improved a lot as a player since he secured a move from Manchester United to Inter Milan last summer.

The 26-year-old has always been a great goal scorer especially in his Everton days but struggled to keep up with that standard while he was at Old Trafford as other aspects of his game - such as his ball control and passing - drew criticism. Since signing for Antonio Conte's Nerazzurri for £75m last summer, the big Belgian has made a huge impact, scoring 23 goals in 35 competitive games.

And, he insists that he will continue to be 'a student of the game' declaring that 'scoring is my drug'. “When you mature, it's not only about yourself anymore," the Belgium’s all-time leading scorer Lukaku told Thierry Henry on Instagram Live. “Scoring is my drug, that's what I live on. But the older you get, you have to use your intelligence, I am a student of the game. “I think if I want to help my team, I have to be capable to give assists. It cannot just be me [scoring], it has to be the guy next to you. Everyone has to feel important. “If I cannot shoot myself, I will always look for the last pass.”

Amid the coronavirus chaos, the former Chelsea striker Lukaku said: “It's just difficult, I miss the competitiveness, the training sessions and I miss the game, playing in front of the fans. “That is the most difficult thing and the thing I miss the most,” to which the Gunners great Henry responded: “What about scoring goals?” Lukaku replied: “Yeah, that is the most important thing.”
