Lautaro Martinez has agreed a new contract with Inter which does not include a release clause.

As reported by Argentinian journalist Cesar Luis Merlo on Twitter earlier today, the 24-year-old Argentinian forward will sign a five-year deal with the Nerazzurri soon, having reached an agreement on the figures earlier today.

His old contract, which expired in 2023, previously included a €111 million release clause that was valid in July. This has been removed from the new deal, with the club wanting to protect their young star.

The 24-year-old Lautaro, who joined Inter in 2018 from Racing Club, is set to become the top star for the Nerazzurri now, following on from the departure of previous talisman Romelu Lukaku.

The Argentinian will need to build an understanding with new signing Edin Dzeko, but he still managed to score on his season debut last night, netting the equaliser in a 3-1 win over Hellas Verona just after half time.
