Tottenham set to hijack Arsenal move for Inter Milan striker, agree “staggering £60million” deal

Reports in England claim Tottenham are poised to beat Arsenal to Lautaro Martinez as the Whie Hart Lane club are lining up a stunning deal for the Inter Milan hitman.

New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has already bolstered his squad this summer with the acquisitions of Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero.

And the Portuguese is said to want to make Argentina international Martinez his fourth signing of the summer.

The Times claim Spurs have agreed a staggering £60million deal for the forward.

Spurs signing the 23-year-old will be a huge blow for their bitter rivals Arsenal.

The Gunners were said to be interested in acquiring the former Racing Club man’s services this summer.

But it seems Mikel Arteta may have been beaten to the punch by his opposite number at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Martinez has been a revelation for Inter since penning a five-year deal at the San Siro in July 2018.

The Bahia Blanca native has scored an impressive 49 goals and provided 20 assists in 149 appearances for Simone Inzaghi side.

And according to The Times, Tottenham plan to play the Martinez alongside skipper Harry Kane, whose future at the club is currently up in the air.
