Serie A giants Inter have won the battle to sign highly-rated youngster Lautaro Martinez, according to a respected Italian journalist.
The Argentine striker has been linked with a move away from Racing Club
#Inter Accordo totale raggiunto con Lautaro Martinez e con il Racing: l’attaccante classe ’97 è bloccato in attesa di ufficialità che arriverà più avanti, 20,2 milioni al Racing, contratto fino al 2023

The 20-year-old has been in blistering form so far this season, scoring an impressive seven times in his eight league appearances for Racing.

Martinez was rumoured to have undergone a medical and even signed a contract with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid back in December, but the move never came to fruition.
It now seems that the Argentine wonderkid will ply his trade in Serie A after all, where he can look forward to linking up alongside international colleague Mauro Icardi.
Martinez is likely to pick up a thing or two from a player who remains very much in-form this campaign, with Inter’s main hitman scoring 18 goals in just 22 Serie A appearances.
