Higuain says Lautaro is ready to lead the attack of Argentina.
He said, "I see a lot of potential in him, he's very young and starts at Inter, which is not easy at his age.
“Playing qualifiers is very complicated, as is the World Cup, where you must feel good for a month.
“Lautaro has great skills, I hope he can give great joy to the national team. It's difficult to judge a player at 24, he has a long career ahead of him.
“I would like to evaluate him when his trajectory ends and after seeing if he will remain at such a high level for many years."
