Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez has been linked with a summer move to Chelsea after scoring 16 goals and providing 4 assists across all competitions for the Serie A side.

The 22 year old Argentine striker has a contract at the San Siro until 2023 with a mammoth release clause of €111m written into it, but that is only valid between July 1 and July 15.

Former Napoli striker Jose Altafini isn’t convinced Martinez is a phenomenon.

“He’s a good player but not a phenomenon,” the former Milan, Napoli and Juventus striker told Mundo Deportivo.

“Only Ronaldinho, the Brazilian Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar can be considered phenomena.

“He’s an excellent player but not on par with the others.”
