Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez has been in fine form this season, scoring 16 goals in all competitions. His fine form at Inter Milan has seen him get linked with Chelsea and Barcelona ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to ESPN pundit Steve Nicol, Martinez would prefer to join Barcelona over Chelsea, as a replacement for Luis Suarez.
“Would be a great signing for Chelsea,” Nicol told ESPN FC.
“I think the problem for Chelsea is there may be if this guy becomes available, because I’m not quite sure if he’s available.
“Obviously money talks but if this guy is available and this guy keeps producing what he’s been producing, then Chelsea might be at the back of the queue.
“[Barcelona have] lost Suarez through injury, they’ll probably be losing Suarez over the next 12 months, 18 months to two years.
“They’re looking for somebody, he fits the bill big time.
“If it’s a choice for him of Chelsea or Barca… right [Barcelona].”
