Chelsea and Liverpool linked with striker with £95m release clause

Martinez to the Premier League?

Chelsea and Liverpool are keeping a close watch on Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez ahead of the summer transfer window.

Martinez was heavily linked with Barcelona last summer, but they were unable to strike a suitable deal with the Nerazzurri.

The Blaugrana proposed a part-exchange deal, but the Serie A club wanted the player’s £95m release clause to be paid in full.

Martinez has impressed this season with 18 goals and nine assists, and he has formed a good understanding with Romelu Lukaku upfront.

Despite this, Martinez’s future with the club remains uncertain with his contract expiring in a couple of years’ time.

Inter are facing financial concerns, and 90min claims that they could be open to parting ways with Argentine forward.

Chelsea are keeping tabs as they look to recruit another striker. Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud could leave the club this summer.

Liverpool are also long-term admirers of Martinez. They are aiming to add competition with Roberto Firmino struggling for form.

Firmino has netted just eight goals from 45 appearances in all competitions.
