Romelu Lukaku has been proving his worth to Inter Milan and the world since he joined the Italian outfit for a record €80 Million. The Belgian has made a huge name for himself and is arguably one of the best strikers in Europe. Having scored 18 goals and provided 8 assists, Lukaku has been involved in most goals in Serie A this season. Ronaldo is not far behind at 20 goals and 3 assists. However, Lukaku has been an absolute master scoring in the most crucial games for Inter Milan. The Belgium International might just help Antonio Conte and Inter to break Juventus’ 9 year reign as Serie A Champions.
Lukaku made a name for himself in the Premier League when he played for Everton and Manchester United. While his days at Old Trafford become bitter-sweet, he was still firing for them. Under Conte, the Belgian has turned into an absolute beast. He recently also scored his 300th career goal as well. A feat he reached faster than Zlatan Ibrahimovic as well. So far, Lukaku has netted 58 times for the Nerazzurri in just 82 games. While his transfer fee may be troubling Inter Milan right now, the 27 year old’s charge to lead Inter to their 19th Scudetto might ease the pain.
For this reason, La Gazzetta Dello Sport called the Inter star “The King” of Serie A strikers.
Luis Muriel has contributed to 21 Atalanta goals. He found the net 15 times and delivered six assists and is the third Serie A striker with the most goal involvements.
