Romelu Lukaku is ready to reunite with strike partner Lautaro Martinez, with the pair having formed a very prolific duo in the two seasons already spent leading the line for Inter.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Belgian is already messaging his former and future teammate about his excitement at playing together again.

Lukaku and Martinez managed to score 104 goals while forming the Nerazzurri’s main strike partnership during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, with their goals vital to a second place finish in Serie A and Europa League final and then a Serie A title.

The duo are regarded as having good chemistry on the pitch and complementary styles of play, with each man getting the best out of his counterpart in terms of production in front of goal.

Lukaku returns to a different Inter than the one he left last summer, with perhaps the biggest change being Simone Inzaghi as head coach in place of Antonio Conte and a more possession-focused style of play.

However, the 29-year-old will find a familiar face in the form of Martinez, as the Argentine does not look at all likely to leave this summer, and the pair could look to resume working together as successfully as they have already done in a new-look Inter.
