Fabrizio Romano: Tottenham Hotspur dealt transfer blow as Lautaro Martinez makes future admission

Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a transfer blow as Lautaro Martinez has sent a firm message on his future prospects. He has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks, but those claims have been shut down following this latest revelation.

Martinez was recently involved in Finalissima as Argentina beat Italy comfortably by a 3-0 scoreline. He was sensational on the night as he scored and assisted once to help them lift the title. In fact, his display was a perfect showing of how good he is, which makes it understandable why Tottenham have expressed an interest in signing him.

Speaking after the game, as relayed by Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, the Argentinian striker has mentioned that he wants to stay at Giuseppe Meazza moving forward. He also added how there are no indications from Inter that they are looking to sell him this summer.

“My plan is clear: I really want to stay at Inter next season. I’ve not received communications from the club as of today, I want to continue at Inter next season.”

Was Martinez even possible?

While we do need a centre-forward addition this summer, it is mostly to find a backup option for Harry Kane as there are no natural options in the squad as of now. Martinez does not fit the bill as it is highly unlikely that he would agree to play a bit-part role when he is a regular starter for the Milan based club.

One could say that Antonio Conte could try to form a two-man attacking front with Kane and Martinez in the attack. However, that would not make sense, especially when Son Heung-Min and Dejan Kulusevski have formed a formidable partnership with Kane on the frontline.

Restructuring the attack when there are no problems would be a complete waste of efforts when there is a need to bolster other areas in the team. Hence, targeting Martinez would only be feasible if Kane would leave us in the future. But that seems not to be the case, with the talisman being open to renewing his current contract, according to Evening Standard.

Hence, losing out on Martinez would not be a blow in the slightest when we would not have spots available for him in the team. Chelsea have also been touted as another potential destination for the centre-forward, but it is good to see that they will lose out on him as well.

After all, we would not want one of our direct rivals to get strengthened by the addition of a world-class player like Martinez. Now, it would be best if we could find a suitable backup option for Kane ahead of the next campaign.

That means finding someone who is not as high profile as Martinez while still being able to deliver consistent performances for us. Let’s hope that there will be a solution to this issue as we cannot go another season with this problem.
