This was after Inter Milan dropped down from the UEFA Champions League into the second tier competition.
He beat Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (128) and Sevilla’s Ever Banega (118) to claim the prize.
“First of all, I will like to congratulate Sevilla personally for having won the final tournament,” Lukaku said in a pre-recorded message after the announcement was made during the Europa League draw.
“Most importantly, I want to thank my team mates, who have been great with me from the first day I joined. They’ve been like brothers to me… Every day I come to training, I come with a smile… they make me want to work harder.”
The vote was made by a jury comprised of coaches from the 48 clubs which participated in the group stages and 55 journalists.
Inter Milan are back in the UEFA Champions League again this season, where they were drawn in Group B alongside 13-times champions Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk and Borussia Moenchengladbach.
