Lautaro Martinez’s agent Beto Yaque has confirmed Chelsea have contacted him over the transfer of the Inter Milan striker ahead of the summer transfer window.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing a striker in the summer and the Blues have been strongly linked with Martinez, who is also attracting interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City.

“We don’t know what will happen, we pay attention to what the media say about it. It’s true that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and City called me, but we don’t know if they have any kind of agreement with Inter,” Yaque told Spanish news outlet Clarin.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo has hailed Martinez as the new Sergio Aguero.

He told Sky Sports Italy: “We know Mauro Icardi and Paulo Dybala, while we’re getting to see what Lautaro Martinez can do.

“Lautaro could well be the new Sergio Aguero. He’s not as sharp in his dribbling, but he is more of a team player than Kun, who too often gets distracted and looks disinterested.

“Lautaro is always participating in the move, so he can play as a lone centre-forward or with another striker like Romelu Lukaku, even in a trident. I really like his mentality.”
