Paratici going all out to appease Conte, Kane with £75m new partner for Tottenham talisman

Fabio Paratici is ready to go to great lengths to bring a new strike partner to Tottenham for Harry Kane, while Friday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Arsenal have joined the race to sign a Bundesliga midfielder.


Tottenham sporting director Fabio Paratici is reportedly ready to go to great lengths to bring Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez to north London as Harry Kane’s new strike partner.

Antonio Conte has done wonders for a Spurs team that was going nowhere fast under Nuno Espirito Santo. taking them to fourth place in the Premier League table.

And now that rumors of Kane’s departure from the club have died down, attention has turned to building a better team around the England captain.

To that end, football transfers states that tottenham they are pushing to sign Martinez again.

The Argentina international is known to be eyeing a move this summer, with Inter eyeing another Spurs target, Paulo Dybala, as his replacement.

Martinezwho has been called a ‘complete’ and ‘spectacular’ figurehead by none other than Lionel Messi for his qualities, has scored 14 goals for Inter this season.

Martinez will not come cheap

The Nerazzurri are believed to value Martinez at around £75m, although it will almost certainly be more than Daniel Levy wants to pay.

Where Martinez will play is also a bit of a mystery, given Conte’s preference for playing with all three forwards. Prolific Son Heung-Min and January signing Dejan Kulusevski are thriving at wide positions.

Martinez has the quality to play a deeper role, though that’s where Kane has excelled this term as well.

Despite that, adding a player of Martinez’s quality to an already lethal attacking trio can only be a good thing.
