Lautaro Martinez is ready to take AC Milan on as the key player for Inter even without Romelu Lukaku by his side, according to a report in the Italian media today. 

As has been suggested by a report in Corriere della Sera, the Argentine forward has shown this season that he is able to have an impact for Inter just like last season even when Romelu Lukaku is not alongside him.

The former Racing striker has scored three times for the club this season and he is the man that everyone will be looking to for goals when the Nerazzurri take on AC Milan at San Siro on Saturday evening.

He is set to have either Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa alongside him and he may be hoping that it is his fellow Argentine who is there. He certainly linked better with him towards the end of last season than with Edin Dzeko.
