Lautaro Martinez could enter Inter Milan’s list of all-time top goalscorers this season if he scores at his usual pace.

This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who highlight the fact that the 25-year-old is heading into the upcoming campaign with a near certainty of not just breaking into the top ten, but also of getting a real foothold for himself there.

As things stand, the tenth man on Inter’s list of top ten goalscorers in all competitions is former striker Ermano Aebi.

The Italian found the back of the net 106 times in a Nerazzurri shirt.

Meanwhile, Martinez has 102 goals to his name for Inter.

Barring an injury that causes him to miss much of the season, or a goal drought that would be incredible even by the sometimes streaky Martinez’s standards, the Argentine should not have a hard time surpassing Aebi’s total next season.

This would make him the club’s tenth all-time highest goalscorer. Hardly bad going for a player who will only turn 26 during the season.

Lautaro Martinez Also Has Vieri & Icardi In His Sights In Inter Milan Goal Charts

If getting past Aebi seems almost a foregone conclusion, Martinez will have to work a little harder to get past the two strikers ahead of the Italian in the Nerazzurri’s goal charts.

Whereas Aebi is a player from Inter’s distant past, two strikers from the club’s modern era sit just ahead of him.

In ninth place, Christian Vieri has scored 123 Nerazzurri goals. And Mauro Icardi scored just one more than the Italian, at 124.

Reining in both Vieri and compatriot Icardi is certainly achievable for Martinez.

The former Racing Club man scored 28 last season, and 25 the season before that. These figures would bring his total to 130 and 127 respectively.

Put another way, Martinez would need to find the back of the net 23 times to overtake both Vieri and Icardi. This would make him Inter’s seventh-highest goalscorer of all time at the season’s end.

Of course, Martinez cannot take this goal total for granted. Particularly if squad rotation and competition for places from Marcus Thuram means he’s not always on the pitch.

However, the Argentine has already done it twice. If he can keep his productivity up to the same rate, he’ll have every chance of vaulting ahead of Vieri and Icardi.

And few would bet against a player who is as much of a stalwart to this Inter team as Martinez.
