Chelsea and Barcelona have both been linked with a move for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, albeit it’s the Spanish giants who are seen as the favourites for his signature.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo has advised his countryman to remain at Inter, stating that he only just won his way as a starter in the first team.

“I would love for [Lautaro] to stay for a thousand reasons,” Crespo told Goal. “He’s in a big team and doing two or three years like this is good.

“You have to live with that pressure of having to play at that level all the time. You need a balance that can give you stay in the same place.

“It seems to me that it would do him good to stay in that sense. He is young and has had many changes.

“This was his first year as a starter, he earned it and the season did not even end.”
