Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wants his international teammate Romelu Lukaku to join him at the club.

The keeper enjoyed a stellar season for Antonio Conte's side as they won the Premier League title by seven points.

The Belgian also won the Premier League Golden Glove award for keeping 16 clean sheets throughout the season and is hoping his international teammate joins him in London.

"Rom is a great player," he said, adding: "so, if he decides to go to Chelsea or Chelsea decides to sign him, I'll be happy to say 'hi' to him in the dressing room in July.

"Obviously we need to respect he's an Everton player and I don't know what will happen to him."  

Lukaku scored 25 league goals for Everton last season as the Toffees finished in 7th place.
