CHELSEA FC could sign Lautaro Martinez this month if they are willing to cough up £80-100 million, according to Reporter Iomie Stanley

The January transfer window gave us an opportunity to delve into that transfer kitty and try to add a few more players to the side that are able to make a real difference to the side, but despite all the speculation, no deals could get done.

Adding a striker is high up on the agenda, and there has already been some massive names linked with a mega money move to Stamford Bridge over the past couple of months.

The Argentinean forward remains a key player for Inter Milan, already breaking the 20 goal barrier. The club are on the hunt for a new No. 9 to lead their line and are long-term admirers of Martinez.

The Nerazzurri are in talks to tie the 26-year-old down to a new deal, and an extension is likely to materialise soon. However, the situation could change should the London giants arrive with a colossal offer, says Stanley

The Serie A giants are going through trouble times and wouldn’t mind letting their prized asset leave if it helps stabilise their finances

Reporter Iomie Stanley said: ‘We need a world class striker to score the goals that the club needs – and Martinez would be a quality signing for the club.

‘There are many that doubt he could cope in the Premier League – but he is a man that has proven himself at the very highest level of the game on a yearly basis.

The club need to sign that big proven striker that has the ability to score – they will not win anything with the squad that they have right now that is for certain.

‘Fans are hoping someone gets signed – but it will be interesting to see just who arrives at the club that is for sure.’
