The report goes on to state that many clubs are likely to come in for Lautaro in the Summer of 2020 and insists than Inter will have to do what they can in order to deter the interest in him.
Despite being under contract until 2023 already, a new and improved deal to reflect his newfound status has been heavily speculated about in the media in recent weeks.
