Media watch: Lukaku 'building dreams'

The Italian sports pages hail Inter forward Romelu Lukaku for his goal and assist in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo. ‘A builder of dreams, as well as goals’.

The Belgian striker, who arrived from Manchester United in the summer of 2019, continues to help Inter fight at the top in Serie A.

Antonio Conte’s men have an 11-point gap at the top after the three points secured in the match against Sassuolo on Wednesday.

Il Corriere dello Sport points out that the striker scored his ‘first goal with his head in Serie A this season’, when the Nerazzurri forward bagged his 27th of the campaign.

The newspaper claims he’s the ‘man of the Scudetto’ and praises how he continues to ‘fight for the high balls, helps the team, serves assists and scores goals’.

La Gazzetta dello Sport says the ‘football lovers relate to how he sprints to get in position after opening up the room for Ashley Young’ and calls Big Rom a ‘builder of dreams, as well as goals’.

Tuttosport highlights that Lukaku continues to be the protagonist when the Nerazzurri counter, as ‘evidenced by the assist to Martinez for the second and the great pass wasted by Alexis Sanchez’.
