Chelsea appear set to miss out on Inter Milan striker, Lautaro Martinez, as he prepares to put pen to a new contract with the Italian giants.

This is as revealed in an update by journalist, Fabrizio Romano over the weekend.

Martinez is a player that Mauricio Pochettino is fascinated by due to his proven ability in front of goal. This season alone, the 26-year-old has already scored 16 goals in just 17 league games.

Pochettino and the Argentine come from the same country, and they would have formed a great partnership at Stamford Bridge, but that is rather very unlikely now, following the striker’s latest comments.

Addressing his future recently, Martinez said (via Fabrizio Romano): “I’m close to signing [a] new deal here at Inter, the negotiations are advanced. It’s just [a] matter of time.”

Getting Martinez this month was always going to prove a difficult task for Chelsea, since most clubs hardly want to lose their best players midway through the season.
