PSG & Chelsea 'battle' for Serie A star

English Premier League

Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are reportedly battling it out for the signature of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

Martinez has been linked with a departure in the past, with Barcelona notably keen on the Argentine although they did not make an official offer.

Tuttomercatoweb have reported that the Argentina international could be sold this transfer window afterh attracting interest from the Blues and the Ligue 1 champions.

LaLiga outfit Atletico Madrid are also reportedly keen as Luis Suarez is set to leave the Spanish capital when his contract expires at the end of the month.

The report claims the Nerazzurri Martinez could now be sold to raise funds in order for the club to re-sign Romelu Lukaku, who left the club to join Chelsea.

The Blues, meanwhile, see Martinez as a replacement for Lukaku who only netted eight goals in 28 Premier League appearances this past season.

The 24-year-old striker finished the 2021/22 season with 25 goals across all competitions and helped Inter clinch the Coppa Italia last month.
