Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly now ‘come back’ for Lautaro Martinez in the summer.
The Lowdown: Tried before
Of course, he is a player that Antonio Conte knows well having managed him last season, even winning the league together, and it looks as if the Italian manager wants to work with him again.
The Latest: Could return
Should Tottenham sign Martinez?
Fabio Paratci reportedly made a bid of €70m (£59m) to take advantage of Inter’s financial situation, but was ultimately told no.
However, the Serie A giants would now ‘think about’ accepting if the same offer was made this summer, and a call from Conte could be an ‘important magnet’ to bring him to Hotspur Way.
The Verdict: No-brainer
If Martinez becomes available at that price, it is surely a no-brainer for the Lilywhites to sign him.
Conte could then replicate the 3-5-2 system that he had at Inter by pairing the Argentina international with Harry Kane, after he previously played with now Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku, who has called him a ‘beast‘ in the past.
At just 24 years of age, Martinez has already scored a total of 111 senior goals for club and country combined, and so a new partnership with Kane would be such a mouth-watering prospect, with Son Heung-min dropping in just behind.
A player hailed as ‘spectacular‘ by none other than Lionel Messi, the striker would certainly excite those at N17.
