Lautaro Martinez is confident he will fit in well alongside Mauro Icardi at Inter and describes the pair as ‘complementary’ players.

The Argentine forward was officially announced as Inter’s fifth signing of the summer on Wednesday and is due to get his first taste of Italian football next week when Luciano Spalletti’s side begin pre-season training, where he will meet up amongst others with fellow new arrivals Radja Nainggolan, Matteo Politano, Stefan De Vrij and Kwadwo Asamoah.

Martinez was given an eye-catching presentation by Inter on the club’s social media profiles, with a video that presented him to fans as ‘El Toro’ (the bull), and the 20 year-old is confident he will be able to strike up a successful partnership on the pitch with skipper Mauro Icardi.

“Mauro and I are perfectly complementary, I’ll get on well with him on the pitch,” he told ESPN on Friday. “He called me [after I signed] to ask if I needed anything, which was very attentive of him.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Racing – my teammates and all the coaches I had there. It’s thanks to them that I have been given this chance to play in Europe, which has been my dream ever since I was a child.”
