Inter striker Edin Dzeko has led the Nerazzurri to a period of great form, while the man he replaced struggles to adapt to life at his new club, according to Italian media.

This from today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who contrast the Bosnian’s season so far with that of departed Nerazzurri striker Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea.

Lukaku was a vital player for Inter during the two seasons he spent with the club, leading the team in both goals and assists last campaign on the way to the Scudetto.

When the Belgian decided to accept an offer to join Premier League side there were many worries that the Nerazzurri’s attack could take a downturn in his absence.

Replacing the massive contribution made by Lukaku was always going to prove difficult for the club, but in former Roma striker Dzeko they signed someone who had experience and proven quality in Serie A.

The signing of Dzeko has proven to be a very good match for the club, as the 35-year-old has become a fixture in the team as they have grown in stature under former Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi.

The Bosnian has bagged eight goals in Serie A so far this campaign, and three in the Champions League, leading the team in goals.

Meanwhile, Lukaku has struggled for goals at Stamford Bridge after a bright start, not finding the back of the net since September thanks in part to an absence through injury.

Apart from Dzeko’s individual contributions at Inter, his arrival has also heralded a stylistic shift, as the team have looked to play a more patient possession-based game in contrast to the direct approach employed with Lukaku leading the line.

The Belgian had been absolutely lethal at attacking space, but with Dzeko in the team the attacking qualities of all the outfield players on the pitch has seemed to be unlocked.

The Nerazzurri have fourteen different goalscorers in Serie A, and seventeen in all competitions, this season in addition to the Bosnian’s haul, and they hardly seem to have missed a beat since losing Lukaku.
