Manchester United and Tottenham have submitted enquiries for Lautaro Martinez, with both giants seeking a new striker.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United and Tottenham are interested in Lautaro Martinez. The Premier League giants have already submitted enquiries for the striker, whose market value is €80 million. But Inter Milan may not sell him this summer.

Premier League clubs will enter the transfer window looking for top-notch strikers to build for next season. Only a handful of top clubs are not prioritising a forward in the summer, with Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea all keen on a new No.9.

Considering all the requirements today, only a few players boast elite profiles. And Lautaro Martinez is among those. The Argentine star has been in the news for a few years. But Inter Milan seem secure with his contract, which lasts until 2026.

Yet, media reports have consistently pointed towards Martinez’s sale as Inter Milan look to raise funds. Other stars on their roster may also leave, with Denzel Dumfries, Andre Onana and Marcelo Brozovic among those.

The report from the Italian outlet claims Manchester United and Tottenham have made enquiries for the striker with €80 million market value. However, the story then claims Inter are uninterested in a sale, despite earlier reports suggesting Martinez could depart the club this summer.

Manchester United’s need for a new striker is no secret. From Victor Osimhen to Harry Kane, a host of players remain linked. The latter, in particular, could become their priority target if Tottenham indicates a sale could materialise.

Similarly, Tottenham, if Kane leaves, want to replace him with a top-draw striker. Martinez has been on their radar for a long time, and this summer, they could cement their interest with an offer. However, it will take a huge bid to convince Inter to sell, something they could remain open about.

The big problem for Tottenham could come in the way of not playing in the Champions League. The World Cup winner or any other top-level player will want to play in the competition, something they could achieve at Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag likes the profile of a player in Martinez’s mould. He wants a reliable goalscorer but has to fit into his style at Manchester United. The striker with €80 million market value will cost significantly less than their other targets like Osimhen or Kane.
