The Nerazzurri forward had plenty of offers on the table in the summer transfer window. However, Lautaro decided to stay at Inter, as his progress has been incredible at the club. The Argentine forward has become one of the best strikers in Europe. His clinical performance in the Champions League last season caught the eyes of many top clubs. Premier League clubs like Arsenal, Man United, and Spurs were keen to have him. Real Madrid and Barcelona were also eyeing the World Cup winner.
