Barcelona star Lionel Messi has hailed Chelsea transfer target Lautaro Martinez as a complete player.

The Inter Milan striker, who reportedly has a release clause of £97 million, is also wanted by Spanish club Barcelona.

“If I am honest I do not know very well if there were or are negotiations right now for him, I have no idea,” Messi told Sport.

“I think I already mentioned it, that Lautaro is an impressive striker, especially because I think he is a very complete point: he is strong, he dribbles well, he has a goal, he knows how to protect the ball.

“But well, we will have to see what happens finally with him and with other names that have been mentioned.

“On the subject of transfers, there are some people in the club who are in charge and should be the ones who choose what they think is best for the squad.

‘It is clear that in this current situation everything is going to be harder in the market as well and you have to be confident to be able to improve what we already have.”
