Tottenham may reportedly turn towards Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez if Harry Kane leaves this summer.
Kane, who’s got strong links with Manchester City, is such a vital part of the Spurs attack. The 28-year-old would leave a gigantic hole if he walked through the exits doors this summer.
However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have a contingency option.
According to The Athletic, Serie A forward Martinez is someone Spurs have got in the back of their thoughts.
The report explains rivals Arsenal are exploring the opportunity to sign the 23-year-old striker and that the player would be open to moving to the Emirates Stadium if he’s allowed to leave.
Martinez is a £65million-rated ace who’s a league champion after helping Inter win Serie A last season.
The Argentine played a massive role in the success because he contributed 17 goals and 10 assists in the 38-game league season.
Of course, Spurs fans would love if the Kane rumours died down and for him to stay in north London. However, it’s smart to have a potential replacement in mind.
Martinez has scored 40 goals combined during the last two seasons for Inter, so is someone recognised across Europe.
The dynamic forward already looks such a complete player at the age of 23 and he benefits massively from playing alongside Romelu Lukaku at the San Siro.
