Lautaro Martinez drops Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs transfer bomb after Finalissima magic

Argentina star Lautaro Martinez has dealt a monumental blow to Chelsea with his request to transfer to Inter Milan amid uncertainty over Romelu Lukaku.

Todd Boehly and his newly formed consortium are already looking for a new number 9 for the current world champions, just one. a year after the previous regime splurged with a club record £97.5million over Serie A star Lukaku. However, despite a quick start to the season, the Blues’ number 9 never really got off to a good start with the end of 2021/22 meaning a mini upturn in form ahead of the summer transfer window.

For Arsenal, they are on the hunt for a new No.9 after Edu failed to replace Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in the January transfer window. Instead, they had to settle for Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette until the end of the season, with the former of the pair set to sign a bumper new contract. Elsewhere in north London, Antonio Conte’s Tottenham were more than equipped to meet their top-four challenge with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min showing fine form throughout 2021/22.

One thing the three London heavyweights have in common is their interest in trying to poach Martine from Serie A with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, the latest to inquire due to the current and uncertain situation surrounding their current number 9 ahead of the window opens June 10.
