Romelu Lukaku's agent believes an English side will win the race to sign the coveted Anderlecht striker.
The 17-year-old Belgium international is a target for many of Europe's top clubs, with Juventus and AC Milan linked with the forward.
But Lukaku's agent Christophe Henrotay says English clubs are trying much harder to sign the teenager, with Chelsea thought to be leading the chase.
Henrotay told calciomercatoweb: "I know Juventus and Milan like the player, but only indirectly.
"At the moment I have not received any signal they want to pursue the matter.
"In England, instead, I have direct contact with several clubs which have shown more determination about the player.
"However, we aren't yet at the stage of real negotiations and formal offers to Anderlecht.
"They are an ambitious club and it will be a difficult decision to deprive themselves in January of one of their best players."
