Lautaro Martinez will not leave Inter Milan and is pleased by the return of Romelu Lukaku, his agent says.
The Argentina forward has been linked with a host of clubs as former strike partner Lukaku returns to San Siro, including Tottenham and Chelsea, with Inter’s attacking ranks having the potential to be bolstered further with the addition of free agent Paulo Dybala.
However, despite considerable competition, Martinez’s agent Alejandro Camano has made it clear his client will remain at the Nerazzurri and is delighted to reunite with Lukaku.
“There’s a link between them, that’s evident. Wearing this shirt isn’t for everyone,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “It’s a great thing.
“Lautaro is happy in Milan, he feels like he’s at the centre of things, he’s loved.
“Why would we want to leave? To where? We’re already at the top.”
Martinez was Inter’s leading scorer in Serie A last season, when they finished second behind rivals Milan, and his tally of 21 goals was only bettered in the division by Lazio’s Ciro Immobile (27) and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic (24), who joined from Fiorentina in January.
Inter commence their Serie A campaign on August 14 away to Lecce, with their first home game at San Siro coming the following week against Spezia.
