Lautaro Martinez: 27 goals in 2023, close to Inter's all-time record. Inter captain Lautaro Martinez has had a fantastic 12 months behind him. After winning the World Cup in Qatar, the flamboyant Argentine striker has scored 27 goals in Serie A this calendar year, four more than Napoli star Victor Osimeno, last season's top scorer.

Last season was very good for the great Argentinian, but this season he made a breakthrough and started scoring goals in almost every game. His team is doing well in the league and is the main favorite to win the title. With that performance, Lautaro came close to Inter's all-time record.

Only three soccer players from this club have scored more league goals than him in one calendar year. Inter legends Cristian Vieri and Diego Milito have 28 each, while the famous Hungarian István Nyjers scored 32 goals back in 1951.

Martinez has five games left until the end of 2023 to make history. He scored his last league goal on Sunday evening at the "Derby of Italy" against Juventus in Turin, when he scored for the final 1:1. Juventus is a direct competitor to Inter for the first place and it will be a tough fight throughout the season against the rivals from Turin.

The interest of big clubs in Lautaro

Lautaro's performances did not go unnoticed. He has been linked with a move to some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, Inter are determined to keep their star and have reportedly offered him a new contract with a significant pay rise.

Lautaro is a key player for Inter and is considered one of the best strikers in the world. He is strong, fast and has a great eye for goal. He is also a team player and is always ready to work hard for his team. These are the main characteristics that Inter leaders did not want to lose in their team's game, because the essence of Inter's game is in Martinez.

With five games left in the year, Lautaro has a great chance of breaking Inter's all-time record. If he can keep scoring goals at his current rate, he certainly will.
