Chelsea linked with summer move for Inter’s Lautaro Martinez – Standard

Martinez impressing with Inter Milan

Lautaro Martinez is having a sensational 2019/20 campaign with Inter Milan.

The Argentine joined the club in 2018, and has gone on to cement himself as a pivotal member of their attack.

In 20 Serie A outings this term, Martinez has found the back of the net on 11 occasions, and he has also provided three assists.

The 22-year-old had several impressive showings in the Champions League earlier this season, scoring five in six appearances for the Nerazzurri.

Martinez has also impressed on an international level, netting nine in 18 appearances for his country.

Chelsea to sign Lautaro Martinez?

Rather unsurprisingly, given his age, current form and potential, the Inter Milan hitman looks to be attracting interest from some European powerhouses.

It was reported earlier this week by ESPN that Martinez was a target of Premier League outfit Manchester United.

However, that same report also claimed that United had been informed that Spanish giants FC Barcelona are favourites to land the Inter standout.

Now, though, another Premier League side are being mentioned in the same breath as Martinez.

According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea have been linked with a summer move for the centre-forward.

The report from the ES claims that the London outfit will be in the market for a striker in the summer after failing to land one in the winter window.

Lyon forward Moussa Dembele is currently the Blues’ top target, but reports in Italy suggest that Chelsea could enter the race for Martinez, as per the Standard.
