Tottenham Hotspur: Italian report makes Lautaro Martinez claim

Tottenham Hotspur: Italian report makes Lautaro Martinez claim -Tottenham Hotspur News

According to a report from the print edition of Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreInter), Tottenham Hotspur are among the leading contenders to sign Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez. 

The lowdown: Spurs’ interest

Spurs have been continually linked with a move for the 24-year-old for some time and it appears that the interest remains heading onto the summer transfer window.

The reigning Serie A title holders could once again cash in on a big name having sold Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea in 2021 for an eye-watering £97.5million (Sky Sports).

This time it could be Tottenham that benefits as manager Antonio Conte eyes up a reunion with Martinez…

The latest: Italian media names three suitors

As per Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreInter), the Lilywhites, alongside Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, ‘have emerged as the main candidates’ to sign the Argentina international.

It’s claimed that the Nezzarruri will demand a fee in the region of  €60-70million (£50-58million) for the man once hailed as ‘spectacular’ by Lionel Messi.

Furthermore, the interest from N17 is believed to be increasing as Tottenham transfer chief Fabio Paratici attempts to reunite Martinez with Conte after the 37-cap ace netted 40 goals under the Italian’s tutelage at the San Siro.

The verdict: At all costs

This is a deal Spurs should be desperate to complete regardless of Harry Kane’s situation at the club this summer.

Martinez has often operated in a strike partnership, most notably alongside Lukaku, and therefore would likely have no issues linking up alongside pass master Kane for the Lilywhites.

So far this season the Argentinian has scored 17 goals and provided three assists in 41 appearances across all competitions including a UEFA Champions League stunner against Liverpool.

Signing a player of this pedigree for the mooted asking price would be a superb piece of business.
