Inter will rely heavily upon Lautaro Martinez to help them achieve a second placed finish in Serie A according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
With a win in tonight’s match against Torino, Inter could go level on points with current second placed Lazio on 68 points.
Finishing in second compared to Inter’s current position of fourth is worth an extra €10.2 million. Finishing in fourth place is worth €16.7 million but a second placed finish is worth €26.9 million.
Lautaro has only scored one goal since the season got back underway but the report implies that the Nerazzurri club are going to continue showing faith in the 22-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a potential move to Barcelona ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
The Argentine national team player has scored 17 goals and provided five assists for his teammates in 38 appearances across all competitions to date.
