Chelsea, Manchester City and Barcelona are the three clubs to have been strongly linked with a move for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez. However, Barcelona seem to be the favourites for his signature.

Barcelona have been linked with massive summer moves for former player Neymar as well as Martinez, but Barca manager Quique Setien has admitted that it will be difficult to sign the duo as it will take a lot of money.

“Both of them, because they are good players.”

“All the great players, how can I not like them?” he said.

“Neymar is one of them, but as things are, you have to consider what is possible and what is not possible.

“We know that these footballers cost a lot of money and that it is not easy to bring them.”

Meanwhile, 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.

“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.
