Tottenham looking to hijack Arsenal move for Lautaro Martinez

According to The Athletic (subscription required) (h/t Metro), Tottenham are ready to test the waters for Arsenal target Lautaro Martinez. Inter Milan are in desperate need of cash injection and the report suggests that the player is willing to leave the club.

It adds that Martinez almost completed a £100million move to Barcelona. However, the move did not materialize.  The 23-year-old was even close to agreeing on a new contract with Inter. However, the club’s financial restrictions denied the player a raise in wages. 

However, there is a big ‘if’ in Tottenham’s pursuit. Spurs will only open negotiations for the Argentine if they end up losing Harry Kane to Manchester City. 

Martinez with Serie A trophy

However, the club won’t get a free run at Martinez if the situation arises. The report adds that bitter rivals Arsenal are in for him too. Spurs. The Gunners are willing to include Alexandre Lacazette in the deal. However, the Italian side only want cash.

The 23-year-old could be a subject of a bidding war between the North London clubs. 

Do Tottenham need Lautaro Martinez?

Martinez, 23, has had one of the best individual and collective seasons ever. Martinez and Romelu Lukaku formed one of the most dangerous attacking duos in the league. He won the Serie A title with Inter. Martinez made 38 appearances for Antonio Conte’s men and racked up 17 goals and 10 assists.

He then went on to win the Copa America with Argentina. Martinez scored 3 goals in 6 appearances. If Harry Kane departs for Manchester City, Martinez would certainly be a viable option.
