The Chelsea and Belgium striker scored 24 goals for Inter Milan last season to lead them to their first Serie A title in 11 years.
The 28-year-old then netted four goals at Euro 2020 as his country reached the quarter-final, before earning a £98million move to Chelsea in August.
He has also scored three goals so far for the European champions, and former AC Milan legend Kaka believes the Belgian has similar characteristics to his former international team-mate, Adriano.
‘Romelu is number one, he reminds me of Adriano at his best – physical strength, intelligence, speed,’ Kaka told Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport via sempreinter.com.
‘A year ago Milan took the lead [in the title race] after the first derby, then Inter took it back and won deservedly.’
Former Brazil striker Adriano scored 67 goals across two spells at San Siro for Inter, while also netting 27 goals in 48 appearances for Brazil between the turn of the century and 2010.
The 39-year-old also enjoyed fine goalscoring spells at Parma, Sao Paulo and in two of his three stints at Flamengo.
