New speculation has emerged regarding the hunt for a new Chelsea striker . The Blues are reportedly still interested in bringing Lautaro Martinez to Stamford Bridge.
Last summer, Chelsea spent a lot of money to buy a new striker. They managed to get the services of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
Had been sharp at the beginning of his arrival, Lukaku’s performance has tended to decline lately. So Chelsea are rumored to want to buy a new striker in the near future.
Fichajes claims that Chelsea are planning to beat Inter Milan again. This time they will try to bring Laurato Martinez.
According to the report, Chelsea have been eyeing Laurato for a long time. Because they judge Laurato is a tokcer striker.
Evidently, this season he became Inter Milan’s mainstay goal machine. He has a slick goal record with the Nerrazurri.
In addition, Chelsea hopes that if they bring in Laurato, he can revive Romelu Lukaku’s performance. So they can become a deadly Chelsea striker duo.
It will be difficult
But the report claims that Chelsea will find it difficult to hijack Laurato. Because the striker has just signed a new contract at Inter.
The Argentine striker a few months ago signed a new contract at Inter. So he will defend the Nerrazurri until 2026.
The transfer fee will be above 100 million Euros. So Chelsea will be difficult to hijack him.
This season Laurato has shown a good performance in the Inter squad. He played 21 times for the Nerrazurri.
He managed to contribute 10 goals and two assists for Inter this season.
Romelu Lukaku: Lautaro Martinez to Chelsea? No, just let me go to Inter Milan
Romelu Lukaku did not recommend his former Inter Milan partner , Lautaro Martinez , to follow him to Chelsea . Because the Belgian man plans to return to the Giuseppe Meazza.
Lukaku and Martinez had two wonderful seasons with the Nerazzurri. The two became a great striker duo who managed to help Inter Milan break the dominance of another Italian giant, Juventus, on the Serie A stage.
Unfortunately, the togetherness of Lukaku and Martinez did not last long. Lukaku left the Nerazzurri after his request for a new contract was denied when Chelsea came for him.
Martinez himself has also been linked with many top clubs over the last few years. But so far, the Argentine player is still loyal to Inter Milan.
No need to follow Chelsea
Even with the arrival of Lukaku, Chelsea’s front line still needs improvement. They are still less productive in terms of goals when compared to the other two occupants of the Premier League’s top three, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Chelsea are not rumored to be interested in Martinez. The option to bring him to Stamford Bridge is actually quite worth considering. But Lukaku did not advise his former team-mate to follow him to London.
No… Lautaro, can stay at Milan. I will return there,” he continued, punctuated by laughter.
If an offer from Inter came…
The situation could have been different had Inter been willing to give him a new contract. Indeed, Lukaku really deserves it, because he is the key figure behind Inter Milan’s success in winning the Scudetto with 30 goals from 44 appearances.
Since moving to Chelsea, Lukaku has not been as terrible as he used to be on the front lines. He has scored just seven goals in 18 appearances, clearly not worth the £97.5m the Blues spent to sign him from Inter.
