Lautaro replaces Messi as the most valuable player from Argentina in the transfer market. Lionel Messi has held the top spot for a long time but Inter star took over in this window. Lautaro had a brilliant season with Inter as he was the key player. Lautaro managed well with Edin Dzeko and helped Inter in completing the domestic double. His transfer value is €75 million while Messi is at €50 million down to the second spot.
Lautaro was prolific in big games as he turned up against Liverpool at Anfield and scored a screamer after beating Van Dijk. He scored crucial goals against AC Milan as well in the Coppa Italia Semi final. The Argentine striker had a dip in form but he recovered in time to give Inter a boost. However, the Nerazzurri missed out on Scudetto but they managed to go to the knockout stages of the Champions League after a long time.
Lautaro replaces Messi as the most valuable player from Argentina this season
Lionel Messi’s transfer value went down after his move to Paris Saint Germain. The Argentine star had an average season to his standards and had difficulties adjusting to the new league. He did not score enough goals and could not take his team forward in the Champions League. Also, due to his age, the transfer value took a hit and Martinez came on top.
Many clubs are after Lautaro but they will have to pay a premium. Also, Inter are focused on getting profits from the sale of Skriniar. They believe it will be tough to replace Lautaro as he has been brilliant in recent seasons. They are looking forward to the Lukaku and Lautaro partnership that gave them success in the past. Also, the Argentine striker signed a new contract with Inter till 2026 this season.
