Martinez revealed one of the reasons for targeting Lukaku was the 20-year-oldâ€™s familiarity to English football and the Premier League.
â€śIt was a perfect fit for what we needed and he is not going to need any settling in period,â€ť Martinez said.
â€śClearly, he knows the league inside-out and he is not going to need any time to settle into the squad because he knows Kevin Mirallas really well from the international setup.
â€śI just see him as someone who can come in straight away and hit the ground running - and you donâ€™t get many players like that.
â€śAs you can imagine, there were many clubs wanting Romelu but we are pleased that we managed to give him a challenge that he is looking forward to.â€ť
