Inter close on Lautaro Martinez

Inter are reportedly in advanced negotiations for Racing Club de Avellaneda striker Lautaro Martinez at a cost of €15-20m.

According to Tuttomercatoweb and Sportitalia, a meeting is planned for Monday or Tuesday in Milan with intermediaries.

A basic verbal agreement is already said to be in place, despite attempts from Real Madrid to intervene, while Roma are also interested.

The Nerazzurri are proposing a five-year contract that will begin from June 2018.

So far this season, Martinez has scored four goals with two assists in just six Primera Division games for his club.

The 20-year-old is already a sensation for Argentina, contributing seven goals in only 11 caps at Under-20 level.
