Romelu Lukaku Could Start Inter Milan Vs Sampdoria Serie A Clash, Italian Media Report
Inter striker Romelu Lukaku stands a good chance of starting for the Nerazzurri in next Monday’s Serie A match away to Sampdoria.
This according to Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it, who report that the Belgian is a real candidate to start against the Blucerchiati after the flashes that he has shown in recent matches against Atalanta and AC Milan.
Lukaku started against Atalanta in the Coppa Italia last Tuesday, and despite a first half in which he still showed a fair bit of rust, started to really get into the match in the second half.
Against Milan in the derby yesterday evening, the 29-year-old did not start as Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez led the line for the Nerazzurri.
However, Lukaku came on as a substitute for Dzeko in the second half of the match, and there were positive signs from his performances that were enough to suggest that he could start when his team travel to Liguria to face Sampdoria next week.
