Romelu Lukaku could set a new goal scoring record if the 2019/20 Serie A season is to resume according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.
The newly turned 27-year-old Inter striker could set a new record for most goals scored in his first campaign in Serie A in the past decade.
Lukaku is currently sitting on 17 goals after 25 games played and is six goals shy of surpassing former Genoa and AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piątek, who netted a total of 22 goals in his first campaign in Serie A and currently holds the record.
Inter have 13 games left to play of this season and provided Lukaku stays injury free he should be able to at least match Piątek’s exploits given his scoring rate this term.
Lukaku joined Inter this past Summer in a club record €65 million deal from Premier League outfit Manchester United. All in all he has made 35 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 23 goals and tallied five assists for his teammates.
