Inter Milan have a tried and trusted method when it comes to signing forwards.
It usually starts with an Argentinian passport and it almost always ends in silverware.
Hernan Crespo had two separate spells at Inter, winning three successive Serie A titles and the Italian Super Cup.
Diego Milito won the treble under Jose Mourinho, scoring twice in the 2010 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
Julio Cruz wasn’t ever a first-team star but still left Inter after six seasons with four Serie A titles, three Italian Super Cups and two Coppa Italia medals in his trophy cabinet.
Mauro Icardi is still waiting for his first piece of silverware but was named Serie A’s top goalscorer in 2015.
So spare a thought for Lautaro Martinez.
The 20-year-old is reportedly close to joining Inter from Racing Club in a deal worth around £17million.
When he does he’ll have a £96mil release clause inserted into his contract.
Martinez is a product of Racing’s academy, which was the same youth setup Milito came through.
He made his first-team debut in 2015 and was rumoured to be close to joining both Madrid giants and Roma in the past.
The striker, who’s been capped 11 times by Argentina’s Under-20 side, has seven goals in eight appearances this season.
So will he be partner for Icardi or a replacement? Inter fans will be hoping it’s not the latter.
