Tottenham Hotspur: Lautaro Martinez could be tempted by N17 move

Tottenham Hotspur: Lautaro Martinez could be tempted by N17 move -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Despite the statement of his agent, FcInterNews (via Sport Witness) believe Tottenham Hotspur target Lautaro Martinez could be tempted by a move to north London due to a salary disparity at Inter Milan.

The Lowdown: Spurs in Martinez talks…

The Times first broke news of Tottenham reaching an agreement on price with the Serie A giants over Martinez, a fee which could reach ‘more than £60 million’.

Can you get 10/10 in this impossible Tottenham pub quiz? What is Spurs' lowest ever finish of the Premier League era?

Alasdair Gold backed this news on his Twitter account, and while this excited many supporters, the situation was sharply turned on it’s head due to Romelu Lukaku leaving for Chelsea.

Fabrizio Romano claimed that while Tottenham had opened talks with Inter, the Belgian returning to Stamford Bridge shifted the Nerazzurri’s stance and they now want to keep him (Twitter).

As well as this, the player’s agent recently came out to say his client ‘will not leave‘ as Martinez opens the door for contract renewal talks.

The Latest: Martinez could be tempted by Tottenham…

In another Martinez twist, despite his agent’s statement, FcInterNews (via Sport Witness) now believe that the Argentine international could still be tempted by Tottenham due to a salary disparity.

Indeed, both Spurs and Atletico Madrid remain as considerable options according to this report.

This is despite Inter executives Giuseppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio being willing to double the 23-year-old’s current salary, with FcInterNews claiming it ‘won’t be enough’.

It is said that the San Siro side must put further effort into agreeing a new deal with Martinez as they aim to fend off Spurs and Atletico once and for all.

The Verdict: Spurs handed hope?

Landing the 28-cap star would certainly be huge coup for Spurs and they may have just been handed a degree of hope by this update.

Scoring 19 goals and bagging 11 assists in all competitions last season, it’s little wonder Inter are desperate to keep hold of their man as both Tottenham and Atletico hover.

Lukaku hailed his teammate as a ‘beast’ last year for his exploits in Italy (Instagram Live via The Daily Mail) and we believe he could be the perfect striking partner for Harry Kane, provided the latter man doesn’t leave for Man City.
