Tottenham are set to test Inter Milan with a £77m offer from Lautaro Martinez as Antonio Conte is ‘crazy’ to sign his former striker

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

Rumors in Italy claim that Spurs are ready to test Inter’s resolve with a bid for the Argentine to the tune of around £77m.

Tottenham are ready to test the water with a gigantic starting offer for the Argentine.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte previously worked with the striker at the San Siro and is said to be “crazy” about signing his former player.

Martinez helped propel Conte’s Inter Milan to the Serie A title in 2020 and the Italian is interested in the pair continuing their history together in north London.

Last season alone, Martínez scored 25 goals in 50 games in all competitions. He also contributed four assists with 42 percent of his shots on goal hitting the target.

According to Italian football journalist Alfredo Pedulla, Spurs are preparing to test the water with a mammoth starting offer for the 24-year-old.

Though it looks like they’ll have to go on a charm offensive to convince the star, who’d rather stay in Milan, where she recently opened a new restaurant.

“Lautaro Martínez wants to stay at Inter at all costs, but Tottenham, who are working on the renewal of Harry Kane, will make an important proposal to Lautaro,” Pedulla told Sportitalia.

Martinez is a star at Inter and is keen to stay at Milan, but Conte is desperate for the striker to join him at Tottenham.

The journalist added on his own website: “I expect a proposal of 90 million euros [£77m] up for Lautaro.

Bury prepare to close [the signings of] Paulo Dybala y Romelu Lukaku, us single to have to wait for time.

«Y Lautaro Martinez wants to stay, the agent’s words about him were sincere and not just smoke. What we can say is that Conte loves The Bull.

“It will depend on Inter, on the Argentine striker himself. Two things are certain: Lautaro Martínez wants to stay, Tottenham will do everything possible to uncork him at Inter.

While Martinez has not been inclined to walk away from the San Siro, it is claimed that if an exit deal is agreed, then a link with Conte is high on his list of priorities.
