Inter striker Romelu Lukaku’s impressive first season with the Nerazzurri was highlighted in a Tweet posted by Italian stats provider Opta Paolo yesterday.
The 27-year-old Belgian striker joined the Nerazzurri from Manchester United last summer in a record-breaking deal for the Milanese club, and has instantly had an impact.
Lukaku has made 41 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 3376 minutes. In that time, he has scored 26 goals and provided five assists.
