Lautaro Martinez Finds His Footing, Commits to Inter

After a lengthy scoring drought, Lautaro Martinez rediscovered his best form and bagged three straight goals. He was instrumental in the recent wins versus Fiorentina and Salernitana and the draw against Barcelona at Camp Nou.

With his brace in the encounter with the Viola, El Toro surpassed his compatriot Diego Milito on Inter’s all-time scorer’s list, Sky points out. He has bagged 64 goals in 146 appearances. El Principe had done it 62 times in 128 matches. The Argentine is now 13th on the chart. He trails legends of the caliber of Antonio Angelillo (68), Mario Corso (75), Christian Vieri (103), Roberto Boninsegna (113), Sandro Mazzola (116), Alessandro Altobelli (128), Istvan Nyers (133), Benito Lorenzi (138), and Giuseppe Meazza (197).

Lautaro Martinez is the second most prolific scorer in the history of the club currently active. Mauro Icardi has hit the net 111 times with the Nerazzurri. He’s pulling away from Zlatan Ibrahimovic (57). Ivan Perisic (49) and Romelu Lukaku (48) complete the top five.

The Argentine is constantly thrown into the transfer market rumor mill, but he seems destined to spend a few more years in Milan. He voiced his loyalty following the Fiorentina clash (via SportMediaset).

“I hope to become a mainstay of this team. I’m focusing exclusively on it. We have many objectives to reach and I’m very happy here.”

Our take on Lautaro Martinez

He’s great on his day and when he has it going, but the Nerazzurri could have surely used some more goals with Romelu Lukaku on the mend, as he went scoreless for eight straight contests. He would leap into superstardom if he got rid of his streakiness, which goes in both directions.
