“Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer list has been revealed,” the British media outlet Express reported on Tuesday (June 10), adding that “Chelsea are in the running for Martinez”.
“Chelsea and Real Madrid are in the race to sign Martinez. Pochettino is a big fan of Martinez,” the report added.토토사이트
“Chelsea have scored just 38 goals in 38 league games this season. They have made signing a striker a priority this summer and Martinez is one of the hottest players in European football right now.”
“Pochettino believes Martinez is one of the best strikers in the world,” said British publication The Times. He is high on Chelsea’s transfer list.”
Will Lautaro Martinez leave Chelsea this summer?
Martinez has established himself as one of the best strikers in the league. In the 2020-21 season, Martinez scored 19 goals and provided 11 assists in 48 games, helping Juventus win the Serie A title. He shared the league title with then-head coach Antonio Conte. This season, he has made his presence felt with 28 goals and 11 assists in 57 appearances.
Martinez was the subject of interest from Tottenham and Arsenal last summer. Spurs, in particular, had their eye on Martinez as a replacement for Harry Kane should he leave, but he remained at Inter Milan, signing a new contract until 2026.
He signed a new contract, which put an end to the transfer rumors. This is because Inter Milan are experiencing financial difficulties. Several teams are in the running for the player.
Chelsea are planning to use both Romelu Lukaku and Martinez at the same time. Lukaku, who is out on loan to Inter Milan, is expected to return to Chelsea this summer. Martinez will be brought in to recreate the Inter Milan attacking combination at Chelsea.
The outlet added: “Pochettino is willing to give Lukaku a chance. If Martinez plays alongside Lukaku, it will help him adapt to a new league.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking to sign between three and six players this summer. They want a striker, as well as at least one more midfielder.
