Gary Lineker reacts amusingly to Tottenham’s pursuit of Lautaro Martinez.
Gary Lineker has reacted to the possibility of Lautaro Martinez joining Tottenham Hotspur.
Gary Lineker has reacted to the possibility of Tottenham signing Lautaro Martinez after it was reported that the two clubs had agreed a deal to recruit the striker from Inter Milan. The prospective move comes as Harry Kane’s future becomes increasingly questionable.
Martinez, 23, is believed to be on Tottenham’s radar as they look for a new number nine, however reports suggest he will partner Kane rather than replace him.
Last season, the Argentine international scored 17 goals in Serie A to help Inter win the championship for the first time since 2011.
Martinez joined the Nerazzurri in 2018 and has forged a dangerous relationship with Romelu Lukaku, a former Manchester United and Chelsea striker.
Martinez’s future at Inter is now in doubt, with the Argentine linked with a move to north London.
Inter must now balance their books after spending extensively in recent transfer windows, including a rumored £74 million deal to capture Lukaku from Manchester United in 2019.
Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte stepped down at the end of last season due to the club’s desire to sell numerous key players.
Inter’s current coach, Simone Inzaghi, is now facing the prospect of losing another crucial player this summer.
Chelsea are allegedly close to completing the £97.5 million transfer of Romelu Lukaku from Inter.
And now another of their main attacking players appears to be on the verge of joining the Premier League.
Former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker has reacted to the news of Martinez’s possible signing to Spurs on social media.
“How will I get a game ahead of @HKane?” he tweeted, ending with a wink emoji.
Kane, the current Tottenham Hotspur striker and England captain, has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer.
