Manchester City are one of a number of Premier League teams interested in signing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez this summer, according to Racing de Alma.
The 21-year-old is one of the great young hopes of Argentine football and has enjoyed an impressive debut season in Europe, joining Inter last summer for £19 million after a prolific spell at Racing Club (Goal).
Martinez, under contract at the San Siro until 2023, has scored nine goals in 30 games while impressing with his work-rate and ability to lead the line impressively in the absence of star man Mauro Icardi.
Racing de Alma claims that Manchester City would love to take Martinez to the Etihad given the opportunity though Inter, who value the striker at £52 million, are unlikely to sell particularly with Icardi expected to leave.
Chelsea are also interested, the report adds, alongside other unnamed English clubs.
Interestingly, Martinez’s agent, Beto Yaque, claimed that Pep Guardiola’s City wanted to sign the five-time international in 2018 before he sealed a move to Italy, via Football Italia.
