West Brom's on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku has his sights on securing a European spot with the Baggies.

The Chelsea player believes such a target is possible despite the Baggies' mid-season slump which ended with a 2-0 win at Liverpool nine days ago.

The Baggies are currently in ninth spot - just five points off sixth place, which could earn them a Europa League spot.

Lukaku, who has scored 10 goals this season, told the Wolverhampton Express and Star: "Europe is still a target, especially for me.

"I think that's the next step for me and I think it is the next step for the club as well.

"You have to take things one step at a time but if the club gets stronger for next year, then why not?"

Lukaku has already indicated that he would like to return to the Hawthorns for a second season and he admitted: "This year has been wonderful."
