Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on Sky Sports News about all things transfer-related about Lautaro Martinez’s links to a possible move to Hotspur.

One player which has hit the headlines over the last 24 hours has been Inter Lautaro Martinez amid reports linking him with a bid in excess of £60m from Spurs.

It is claimed the two clubs had agreed upon a deal for the Argentine earlier in the week, but that Spurs face losing out on the 23-year-old with Inter now set to lose Romelu Lukaku as he heads back to Chelsea.

Martinez comes into the 2021/22 campaign on the back of winning the Copa America this summer alongside Tottenham’s latest acquisition, Cristian Romero.

Speaking on what he knows about the potential deal and where the two clubs stand, the transfer insider had the following to say.

“The interest is genuine because it’s true that want Lautaro Martinez. They’ve been in talks with his agent, with Inter about Lautaro Martinez.

“So it’s true that there is a strong interest from Tottenham, but it’s something that they wanted to do before Inter sold Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.

“It was about last week, that’s why the situation now is not easy. Inter state that they want to keep Lautaro Martinez at the club. They are convinced that Lautaro will be staying because they sold Lukaku, and they sold Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain, so they don’t need money right now. And that’s why I think that this deal with will be complicated.”

TIF Thoughts on a potential deal…

In some of the reports to emerge, it has been claimed Espirito Santo would look to integrate the Argentine alongside in a two-man strikeforce.

With this in mind, we question whether this would be as a straight two-man frontline or whether this would lead to Kane dropping into a deeper role. The England captain led the League in assists last season with 14 to his name and demonstrated he is capable of dropping slightly deeper to allow the wingers to run in behind.

However, if it was to be a straight two-man strikeforce, how would this affect Kane’s output in front of goal if he is playing alongside another proven goalscorer?
