According to 90min, Liverpool and Manchester City are interested in signing Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martínez.
The report states that the Reds and the Citizens have asked Inter Milan to keep them informed of any developments regarding his future.
Antonio Conte’s side are in desperate need of cash, and as a result, 90min say that one major sale may be required to ease their situation.
Both Romelu Lukaku and Martínez could be sold, although the latter is more likely to leave the San Siro according to 90min.
Inter Milan did have a £70 million price tag on their No.10’s head.
However, 90min claim that they may now accept an offer under that amount, given their dire financial situation.
Whoever lands Martínez will be getting a tremendous forward.
One man who is a big fan of the 23-year-old’s talents is Luis Suárez.
The former Liverpool star said that Martínez is a ‘very talented’ player when tipping the South American to replace him at Barcelona.
RAC 1 (via Goal) quote him as saying: “Lautaro is very talented. He is a player who in his second year in Italy is playing at a great level.”
In our view, this is an opportunity that Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola simply cannot ignore.
It’s not everyday that a player of Martínez’s quality becomes available.
The Argentine is already among Europe’s best, and at 23, could go on to even bigger things.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the running for the Ballon d’Or one day, in all honesty.
With Inter Milan struggling for cash, Liverpool and Manchester City must act ruthlessly.
