Lautaro Martinez on the Verge of Smashing a Club Record

Lautaro Martinez delivered again in the Derby d’Italia, scoring his 13th Serie A goal of the season. He’s running away in the capocannoniere chart. His haul in this calendar year is equally impressive. He has hit the net 27 times in 2023, Opta informs (via Fantacalcio).

El Toro has a club record well within his grasp. He’s one goal shy of catching up with legendary Diego Milito and Christian Vieri. They both found the target on 28 occasions in their best stretch with the Nerazzurri. The Argentine did it in 2012, while Bobo in 2001.

Lautaro Martinez has over a month and several fixtures to overtake the iconic duo and leave it in the dust, taking firm control of the record.

The World Cup winner has already built a six-goal lead over Domenico Berardi and Olivier Giroud, who trail him in the scorers’ chart. Other potential candidates Victor Osimhen and Romelu Lukaku put their names on the stat sheet six times.

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta addressed the talks with Lautaro Martinez and his camp again before the game versus Juventus (via Mediaset).

“I don’t think there’ll be big problems in concluding his contract renewal. He stated he wanted to continue his spell with us a few times. We share his desire. We’re negotiating with his agents.”
