Lautaro ‘half Icardi, half Higuain’

Lautaro Martinez is a mix of Gonzalo Higuain and Mauro Icardi, according to former Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso.

There is real curiosity as to what Martinez will offer Inter when he arrives from Racing Club, and Cambiasso believes have bought themselves a clinical finisher in the 20-year-old.

“Icardi? In Argentina, there’s always talk about the abundance of quality that the Coach Sampaoli has in attack,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“I think that’ll lead to Higuain, Aguero and Lautaro Martinez being taken to the World Cup, which is very good.

“Can he play with Icardi? Good players can always play together. As for his quality, he’s more similar to Higuain, although Pipita is stronger outside the box.

“He’s in between [Higuain] and Icardi. As for Icardi, I think the fault lies with the way [Inter] play. They’re not supporting him enough.”
