Reports in Belgium has it that his form hasn’t gone unnoticed by the handlers of the Belgium national team but he isn’t open to the idea according to his representative.

“He understands that the country is blessed with several options in attack but he wants a chance to compete. A fair chance is not too much to ask”, he concluded.
