Former Barcelona striker Pizzi – who has also served time in Chile and Saudi Arabia – favored the 22-year-old Argentine international for transfer to Camp Nou.
“Lotto Martinez is more than Coon [Sergio] Aguero, the new forward-looking prototype to coincide with Barca, “the former Spain international PG of Argentine descent told AFE.
“He has already proven what he can do with Argentina through racing and inter. Barcelona seems to be the ideal striker for the way they play football.
“Even in one of the toughest leagues in the world, in Italy, he still managed to play at a very high level.”
Martinez changed the racing club for the Inter in 24 racing, and he quickly established himself as one of the most sought-after forwards in European football.
He has scored a total of 25 goals since joining Inter from the Argentine Racing Club.
