Romelu Lukaku's replacement at Inter Milan is making a killing in front of goal

Romelu Lukaku completed a move away from Inter Milan to rejoin his former club Chelsea in the English Premier league, and AS Roma player Edin Dzeko completed a move to Inter Milan as Lukaku's replacement.

Inter Milan's move for Edin Dzeko has proven with positive results to be a smart move as a replacement for Lukaku who was the topscorer for the club last season. Lukaku has played 4 matches for Chelsea scoring 3 goals, with Edin Dzeko playing 5 matches for Inter Milan scoring 4 goals and aiding 1 assist.

Inter Milan impressed when they won their latest fixture in the Serie-A away from home to Fiorentina. Inter Milan won the match 3-1 at full-time, but it was not easy as they had to make a comeback from 1-0 down to win. Fiorentina opened the scoring the 23rd minute when Riccardo Sottil scored for a 1-0 lead.

Inter Milan got back in the match when Matteo Darmian scored in the 52nd minute of the match to level the score on 1-1. Through the help of Edin Dzeko's goal in the 55th minute of the match, Inter Milan claimed the lead for the first time at 2-1.

Inter Milan impressively extended their lead to 3-1 when Ivan Perisic scored in the 87th minute. Inter Milan won the match 3-1 at full-time and claimed the first place spot on 13 points. Edin Dzeko scored and assisted in the 4-0 win against Genoa on round 1 of the Serie-A.

In round 2, Inter Milan won 3-1 against Hellas Verona, but Edin Dzeko did not score in that match. In round 3, Inter drew 2-2 in which Dzeko was not part of the goalscorers again. In round 4, Inter Milan had an impressive 6-1 win against Bologna in which Edin Dzeko scored 2 stunning goals. In round 5,which was the latest match Edin Dzeko scored 1 against Fiorentina in the 3-1 win to get his goals to 4 in 5 matches played.

Replacing Romelu Lukaku with Edin Dzeko was not a bad idea at all to date, but Dzeko still needs to prove himself worthy and keep his current form going.
