Lukaku's move to Roma was formally completed this week, with Chelsea to receive a loan fee of over £5 million after the 30-year-old agreed to drop his wages to just over £6 million for 10 months in Italy. But where does that make him rank among the highest-paid Serie A players?

Speaking to Telegraph Sport, a Roma official said: "The owners of AS Roma are committed to ensuring that a deal with Lukaku is done. The club has improved year on year with the Friedkin family's investment and they see him as a core part of their vision for the club to achieve their best result yet, and finish top four in Serie A."

Lukaku's negotiated deal in Rome will make him one of the highest-paid players in Italy's top flight, and the top earner at Roma, but he will earn less than a substantial chunk of Juventus and Internazionale's squads.

Players from Atalanta, Lazio, Milan and champions Napoli also feature in the list of the 25 highest-earning Serie A players.
