Gianluca di Marzio has revealed that Tottenham are interested in Lautaro Martinez and it could be the summer where the Argentine leaves Inter.
While Martinez did sign a new deal with Inter recently, Di Marzio spoke to Wettfreunde recently and he talked about the future of the Argentine, which is still pretty much up in the air at the Nerazzurri.
The journalist said: “I think it could be the summer of Lautaro and Atletico Madrid or Tottenham could be perfect solutions for him but I know that he’d like to go to (Atletico) Madrid.”
“Tottenham, because I think Tottenham will go forward to Lautaro (Martinez), they wanted him last summer as they want another striker because they have to sell (Harry) Kane.”
“They want another striker to play with Kane or prepare the future without Kane and Lautaro Martinez is one of the players that Fabio Paratici loves more.”
“If he (Lautaro) had to choose another team and another tournament he would choose Atletico Madrid and Simeone.”
Di Marzio also believes that Inter’s financial situation could lead to them trying to offload the striker, who has had some rough spells in Serie A this season.
He said: “I think that the economical situation of Inter, (they) can let Lautaro go if the offer will be really high. Inter demonstrated last summer that if they have to sell some important players, they’ll sell the player but the offer should be very, very high. Romelu Lukaku for €113 million, (Achraf) Hakimi for €70 million.”
“So, they will not sell Lautaro for less than €70 million. It depends on the market, depends on (Erling) Haaland, depends on (Kylian) Mbappe.”
Martinez has scored 14 Serie A goals this season for Inter, also picking up a couple of assists for Simone Inzaghi’s side.
