Chelsea are desperate to add Inter Milan forward

Chelsea have added Lautaro Martinez to the list of players they are looking at to bolster their front-line ahead of the next campaign. Chelsea are bracing themselves for many departures this summer and have started identifying possible replacements for outgoing footballers.

Centre-back is one area that might need heavy reinforcements, with the impending departures of Rudiger and Christensen expected. Azpilicueta and Alonso have both been linked with Barcelona, leaving the Blues with a defence in need of many signings this summer.

The futures of Kante and Jorginho are not clear either, with both midfielders entering the final years of their deal with Chelsea this summer. They are attracting interest too with Jorginho getting linked with a return to Serie A, while Man United are monitoring Kante’s situation at Stamford Bridge.

In the front-line, the Blues could potentially lose Pulisic with the American forward eager for playing time ahead of the FIFA World Cup later this year. Werner and Ziyech are also said to be ‘exploring their options’, and summer moves for them cannot be ruled out.

As a result, the Blues are actively looking for forwards who can replace the aforementioned footballers in the squad. In this quest, Lautaro Martinez, who has maintained his goalscoring form even after the departures of Antonio Conte and Lukaku, has emerged as a possible signing for the Blues.
