“He is the sort of technical, ruthless forward’ Chelsea should sign Tuchel told

chelsea, martinez

Ex-Chelsea player Tony Cascarino has told the Blues that they should make a move to try and sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez in the summer

Chelsea have been linked with a move for the South American hotshot, as they look to replace Romelu Lukaku, who has struggled to make the impact at the club that they would have hoped for.

Martinez signed a new deal with the current Serie A leaders last season, but there had been alot of speculation in the media that he is very much open to the idea of seeking a fresh challenge and coming to the Premier League.

Now – amid all the speculation suggesting that the club are lining up a massive five-year contract for the striker – Cascarino has encouraged his former clubs to try and secure a deal for the striker

He wrote for The Times: “The attacking players they have now are top talents in many ways, but they lack a clinical goal scorer.

“The FA Cup final against Liverpool showed again that they need too many chances to score.”

The pundit went on to suggest a striker for them: “I like the boy Lautaro Martínez at Inter, so I would suggest Chelsea offer the Italian club the chance to take Romelu Lukaku back on loan, get rid of Timo Werner, and bring in Martínez .

“He is the sort of technical, ruthless forward they need.

“Harry Kane would be ideal for them but I don’t think that is a move he could take seriously given Chelsea’s rivalry with Tottenham.”
