Kolkata, November 25: As per the latest rumours in England, Tottenham Hotspur could finally land their prime target of the summer Lautaro Martinez in January.
Spurs were hot on the trail of the 24-year-old in the summer and reportedly saw a bid worth more than €60 million accepted by the Nerazzurri but the deal failed to materialise as Inter sanctioned the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.
There are not many managers in modern-day football who like to play with two strikers up front but Antonio Conte has done it successfully with different teams. And, Martinez moving to Spurs could mean a change in system for the Lilywhites with two world class strikers up front with him and Kane. And, with both of them being pretty much all-round, hard-working and selfless, this duo could do miracles for the club.
Martinez and Conte already know each other really well and the 24-year-old won his only trophy in club football under the Italian gaffer at Inter. Conte used the Argentinian really well at San Siro alongside Lukaku and made a big impact on the young striker's overall progress as a complete forward.
The 33-cap Argentinian has been in good form so far this season with six goals and 1 assist to his name in 16 games having come up with 19 strikes and 11 setups last campaign helping Inter clinch the Serie A title. Martinez even been nominated for this year's Ballon d'Or and Conte deserves plenty of credit for that. If a reunion of the two is on the cards, it would mean only good news for Spurs.
