Paratici plots a new record Tottenham move for 24-year-old Series A ‘beast’ after Conte approval

Tottenham have once again been linked with a move for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, writes the FTT.

Spurs were looking to bring the Argentina international to north London back in the summer, with Sky Sports suggesting the club were willing to fork out £60m for the striker.

As we know, a move failed to materialise and the 24-year-old has since penned a new deal with Inter until 2026.

However, Spurs are still thought to be showing an interest ahead of Antonio Conte’s first full season in charge, with reports last month claiming Fabio Paratici is ‘at work’ over a summer swoop.

Sports Witness relayed an update on Martinez from Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday.

They claimed it is ‘easy to imagine’ that top clubs, including Spurs, will go back in for the forward, suggesting a fee higher than €95m (£80m) may now be required.

Spurs will need to smash their transfer record to bring Martinez to London, however, it seems as if a move hasn’t been ruled out.

The striker, labelled as a ‘beast’ by Romelu Lukaku, is on £180,000-a-week, so Paratici would need to convince Daniel Levy and co that it would be worth splashing the cash on the South American, as Conte has already given his approval to a move.

Central attacking options appear to be needed at the club over the summer to help Harry Kane though, and Martinez certainly ticks the box in terms of quality, already scoring 111 goals during his career for both club and country.
