Chelsea to propose swap deal in bid to land Argentinian international striker

Finally, a publication has decided to throw another name in the mix for Chelsea’s pursuit of strikers in the summer, and this is a popular choice!

Lautaro Martinez of Inter is reportedly being considered as a potential summer pursuit by Chelsea, according to Calciomercato.

The report states that The Blues could consider offering Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri to the Italian side as part of a swap deal, with Inter showing an interest in both players recently.

It could be a useful makeweight for Chelsea as they search to bring in competition for lead goalscorer Tammy Abraham.

Argentinian international Martinez is a top talent and is really gaining a name for himself across world football. There will no doubt be other clubs in for his signature this summer, that’s if Inter will even consider letting him go.

Of course there is a long way to go until the summer transfer window, and a lot can happen between now and then.
