Lukoki played in the Netherlands for Ajax, Cambuur, PEC Zwolle and recently for FC Twente, which decided to terminate his contract at the beginning of this year after a serious knee injury. Lukoki was born in the former Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, but moved with his family to the Netherlands at a young age. He ended up in Ajax’s youth academy and made his debut in the first team in early 2011 in the 2-0 Classic against Feyenoord.
