One name which has been heavily linked with a potential summer switch to Spurs over the last 24 hours is Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.
Would you rather see Martinez signed or a new centre-back?
It has been claimed the two clubs have agreed on a fee worth in excess of £60m for the 23-year-old striker, who is wanted to play alongside Harry Kane.
Speaking on whether a deal for the striker could be possible now Lukaku is expected to join the Blues in the coming days, Guest had the following to say.
“Inter, obviously, ideally don’t want to sell both their main strikers, but then what happens with them financially is going to have a big impact on whether Martinez does become a Tottenham player or wherever he does remain at the San Siro.
“His agent’s already made it clear he’s happy in Italy. He’s happy at Inter Milan, but as we reported on Football.london this morning, the player is keen on the move to join up with his fellow Argentina internationals in Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero at Tottenham, but no personal terms had been agreed.”
TIF Thoughts on the Martinez rumours…
However, if Spurs do expect Kane to stay, then is the reported £60m+ best spent on another weapon for their attack?
The addition of Cristian Romero was certainly a step in the right direction, in our opinion. However, we still feel another top-class centre-back is needed to partner him.
