However, decently during an Instagram live Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti on being asked about Lautaro said, “I will be sincere. When we took him, we knew he was one of Argentina's most promising young men. Now with the work of [head coach Antonio] Conte, at just 22 years old, he can give a lot. Right now here, with everything that is happening, we are not thinking about what he will do. Then we'll see, but now I see him very happy here at Inter. And with Lukaku he is great”.
Till date, Lautaro has netted 16 goals in 31 games across all competitions.
