According to Daily Express, Chelsea are willing to pay Lautaro Martinez double his current wages in an attempt to lure the Inter Milan striker to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are in a battle with Barcelona for the signature of the 22 year old Argentine striker.
Chelsea are reportedly prepared to offer Martinez wages of £8.8 million to sign for the Blues and that is almost double what Inter are proposing in their renewal offer as they look to tie Martinez down on a new contract beyond 2023.
Martinez has a release clause of £102 million which Chelsea is reportedly willing to trigger.
However, despite Chelsea’s desire to double his wages, it is believed the Argentine still prefers a move to Spanish club Barcelona, who aren’t willing to pay him as much as Chelsea.
