Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Chelsea transfer target Lautaro Martinez as one of the best strikers in the world.

The 22-year-old has impressed for Antonio Conte’s Inter this season, scoring 16 goals and supplying four assists in 31 matches.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing the striker in the next transfer window and Pochettino understands why Martinez is getting so much attention.

“Lautaro Martinez is one of the best strikers in the world,” Pochettino told Radio La Plata.

“It’s not just for what he does now, but for what his potential means going forward. If you start looking at hitmen for the big clubs, clearly his name has to be in there.”
