Chelsea have been out of the market for a while now, and most people are assuming they’re looking to make a big impact once they’re back. They’ve got several positions to upgrade, and competition for Tammy Abraham up front is definitely on the list.
One player they’ve been linked with is Lautaro Martinez of Inter. He’s wanted by Spain’s big two, but today The Sun say that neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid have actually had talks with the striker yet.
In theory, that opens up a path for Chelsea to make a move, although it’s a stretch to get too excited about a player’s potential signing just on the basis he’s not in discussion wither teams.
He’s a ridiculously good prospect, and we would love him in the Chelsea team – but that’ still a long long way off. For now let’s just hope that our rivals don’t make any advances in this odd break in the schedule.
