Veron: Inter Milan ace Martinez a mix of Aguero, Crespo and Batistuta

Argentine great Juan Sebastian Veron says it's difficult to compare Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez with other players.

Martinez is proving a revelation this season for the Serie A leaders.

And Veron says: "Practically impossible to do so (make a comparison), because Lautaro is a mix.

"I'll explain: in him I see certain movements of (Sergio) Aguero, especially when the team attacks and he dissociates himself to dictate the pass; he has the power of (Gabriel) Batistuta, when he shoots, and the same cunning of (Hernan) Crespo in the area.

"He can always put himself in the right place at the right time."
