Chelsea tried to sign £90m-rated Inter Milan star this summer

Premier League giants, Chelsea reportedly made an attempt to secure services of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez during the last summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old forward was heavily linked with a switch away from Serie A giants, Inter Milan during the recent transfer window, with La Liga giants, Barcelona believed to lead the race for the South American star.

The Spanish heavyweights were unable to agree on a deal for the Inter Milan forward, though, with the Italian outfit allegedly refusing to drop their price tag, which is believed to have been in excess of £90m.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Blues also made an enquiry for Martinez, however, the South American rejected the opportunity to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The report suggests that the ex-Racing Club starlet was only prepared to depart from San Siro over the summer to join either La Liga giants Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Martinez has been in stunning form for Antonio Conte’s team at the start of the 2020-21 season, finding the back of the net on three times in three Serie A games.
