After leading his side to a well-deserved Serie A triumph, Romelu Lukaku has revealed the next target he has in sight.

Inter forward Romelu Lukaku is now targeting Euro 2020 as his next piece of silverware to win.

The Nerazzurri striker spoke to La Tribune after helping Inter secure their first Scudetto in 11 years and said he hopes his teammates in the Belgium squad will bring further titles into the national team ahead of Euro 2020.

Following a Serie A win with Inter, Lukaku now hopes to do the same in national colours with the Red Devils.

“I really hope that all the other Belgium players can win titles this year,” he said. “[Thibaut] Courtois, Eden and Thorgan Hazard, [Axel] Witsel, [Kevin] de Bruyne.

“It would be great for the team to bring this spirit to the national team as well, so that we can all move forward together.

“Winning a club title allows you to gain experience that helps you face the games in a better way. It gives you the killer mentality that I had missed a little during my career.”

The 27-year-old, who won the League title with Anderlecht and the FA Cup with Chelsea before joining Inter, admitted he has ‘given up’ too many times in his career and needed to change his attitude.

“I have had too many moments where I have given up over the course of my career,” he continued. “Then I said to myself: ‘Enough, I’m tired, I’m 27 and it’s time for a change’. But my work doesn’t stop here.

“I’m happy because we won a title, but I’m already targeting the European Championship.”
