Man City are the latest club to register their interest in Inter Milan striking talent Lautaro Martinez, following in the footsteps of a host of European heavyweights including Man Utd, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The 22-year-old has combined with Romelu Lukaku to form a lethal partnership at the San Siro this season.
The duo have contributed 24 goals between them across all competitions, with Argentine Martinez responsible for for 13 of those.
However, the Blaugrana could be set to face stiff competition from Pep Guardiola’s men from the Etihad according to the latest reports from Italy.
Inter – fully aware of the lucrative asset they control – will be keen to maximise the potential profit they could make on a player they signed for just €22.7m in the summer of 2018.
The report continues: “[Martinez] has a buyout clause of €111m, but the report suggests that the Nerazzurri are in discussions with his representatives to negotiate a new contract that would see that buyout clause rise significantly.”
Jesus has deputised for the crocked Argentinian superbly of late, with his brace versus Sean Dyche’s Burnley on Tuesday night spearheading the Citizens to all three points at Turf Moor.
