[Lautaro Martinez is delighted to be delivering success for Intermilan and insists he is happy in Serie A despite reported interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs] Last year, I played in a team with a coach who played with only one striker in attack. I knew that in front of me there was the captain, Icardi, the most important player for Inter, and obviously it was very complicated for me to play. I always trained to the maximum, but I knew it was like that. I had the chance to play a few minutes but not like I would play now. This year, I had a great Copa America, then I met Conte, who works at high intensity and treats all players in the same way. This makes everyone train to the maximum. Then there is Romelu, who is a great person on and off the pitch. We are working hard to follow the coach’s instructions and take Inter to the top

[Martinez has been linked with Barcelona and Manchester City in recent weeks but described his happiness at San Siro] Inter is my home. That’s something very important for me. I try to work hard and prove with humility on the pitch that I deserve to wear this shirt. I want to bring as much joy as possible to the Nerazzurri fans and my family

[Lautaro Martinez says it is a privilege to play with Lionel Messi for Argentina] For us Argentines, Leo is as important as Maradona was. It’s something that goes beyond football. He is the best in the world; playing with him in the national team is a privilege. He is generous; he shows me his movements, he teaches me to find spaces that apparently do not exist. [Winning the World Cup with Messi] would be wonderful. He got very close to it. He has come close to the Copa America, playing three finals. Messi as world champion, together with his team-mates, would be a great thing for all Argentina

[Lautaro has 13 goals in 22 appearances for Inter this season] It means that I’m working right. It means that I’m getting better and I’m doing well for Inter and for me, that’s the most important thing. I’m happy here, it’s my home. Conte is helping me improve. He gives me the minutes that you need as a player. He trusts me and I feel safe. We have gotten to know each other quickly. It seems incredible to me that only five months have passed. The thing I appreciate most about him is his passion for football. It’s deep, contagious

[Lautaro believes his childhood prepared him well for the challenges of professional football] I thank my parents. My father played football when he was young and passed on his passion to me and my brothers. There was no money, but there was never an empty plate on the table and we had a ball. For a while we all slept in one room – we three children, mom and dad. But the football was sacred. We went to training by bicycle, by bus, often on foot. Living through hard experiences strengthens you. It helps you keep your feet on the ground and work with humility. In this way, we are similar. Romelu is only 26 but has so much experience in life and football. He has scored so many goals for great teams and still has a noble heart

[Lautaro Martinez in love with Intermilan but flattered by Barcelona talk] I’m very happy here at Inter, people love me and I love them. If you talk about me [as a transfer target] it is because I do my job well. I must continue on this path. I am very calm, I live day to day and I am happy and comfortable here

[Lautaro credits Antonio Conte as a driving force behind his rapid progress] Many things have changed since he came in. He has a special way of doing things and has taught us so much from his first day in charge. He has convinced us to all give our best and the results are there for all to see. I have had to adapt to a new culture in another country and learn another language. I played little under the previous manager, but under Conte I have grown a lot and I am enjoying how things are going

Lukaku helps me a lot, he is a player who – on and off the field – is very important to me. He is a very good person who helps me out. I am very happy to have met him
