Inter Milan have lowered their asking price for Lautaro Martinez amid links of a move away from the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, per Corriere della Sera.
The Nerazzurri reportedly demanded around €100million last summer but are now willing to part ways with the Argentine for a fee between €60 and €70m this time.
Martinez has scored 17 goals across all competitions this term and is on course to eclipse his personal best of 21 which he racked up in the 2019/20 campaign.
Barcelona, Arsenal, and Atletico Madrid are all interested in landing the 24-year-old, while Antonio Conte is also keen on a reunion with Martinez at Tottenham Hotspur after they won the Serie A title together.
However, Martinez’s agent, Alejandro Camano, recently declared that his client was happy at the club in a recent interview with FCInter1908 (via Football Italia).
“Lautaro doesn’t think about himself, he only thinks about Inter. Lautaro wants Inter to win, he is not interested in personal success. We must remain calm because Lautaro is happy at Inter and is happy with Inter fans.”
Having recently extended his contract to 2026 back in October, a move away this summer would come as a big surprise as the forward continues to deliver the goods for Simone Inzaghi’s men.
In the meantime, Lautaro and Inter are focused on finishing the current season strongly as they remain firmly in the hunt for a league and cup double.
Inter take on city rivals AC Milan in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final tomorrow with all to play for off the back of a goalless stalemate in the first leg.
The Milan clubs are also set to go head-to-head for the Scudetto as AC lead the way at the moment, one point clear of Inter albeit having played a game more.
