Striker Romelu Lukaku will be the reference point around which Inter build their attack when both he and the team return from the international break next month.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the team are planning to try and really get the best out of the 29-year-old as a focal point after the false start of his first few matches this season before picking up a thigh injury.

Lukaku had a mixed start to his second spell in an Inter shirt, scoring one goal and assisting another across the three matches he played before getting injured, but also looking a bit out of sync with the rest of the team.

Now, after having missed several matches through injury, the Belgian is ready to not just return to the pitch, but to show that he’s taken the recovery period to grow into the side tactically as well as find genuine match-fitness.

The hope within the team is that the presence of Lukaku leading the line will give the Nerazzurri the boost that they needed to finally rediscover their identity that’s seemed lost at the start of the campaign.
