Inter striker Romelu Lukaku’s strong start at Inter has started to shake off the memories of Mauro Icardi, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Corriere della Sera.
The report details how Lukaku’s nine goals in his first 11 league games of the season have helped push the team to second in the league table, only one point behind league leaders Juventus. His two goals yesterday against Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara gifted the Nerazzurri another vital three points in their chase of the Scudetto.
Inter coach Antonio Conte has long wanted to work with the 26-year-old Belgian striker, and their partnership together is already starting to pay dividends for the Milanese side, the report adds. In the last four games the former Manchester United striker has scored six goals, showing how he has started to finally settle with the Nerazzurri.
Nine victories in the first 11 games of the season allows Inter fans to dream of the championship, with Conte and Lukaku leading the charge, the report finishes.
