Inter sweat on fitness of Lautaro Martinez ahead of Barcelona clash

Reports in Italy claim Lautaro Martinez will undergo medical examinations today after sustaining a suspected flexor injury against Roma.

The Argentinean striker played 90 minutes against the Giallorossi at the Stadio Meazza last night but was seeing limping off the pitch after the final whistle.

La Gazzetta Dello Sport and Il Corriere Dello Sport report El Toro is dealing with a flexor issue, so he will undergo medical examinations today.

Inter hope the Argentina international hasn’t picked up an injury considering that they are already without Romelu Lukaku.

The Nerazzurri lost their fourth Serie A game from eight yesterday and are now preparing to face Barcelona in a key Champions League fixture at San Siro on Tuesday night.

Both Inter and Barcelona have three points in two games, having beaten Viktoria Plzen and lost to Bayern Munich in the opening two group stage games.

Lautaro is Inter’s best scorer this season with three goals in ten appearances across all competitions.
