Inter have lodged an official bid with Racing Club for young striker Lautaro Martinez according to Argentine news outlet Olé.
Inter made the bid having had scouts in the stands watching Martinez in Racing’s clash with Independiente at the end of November.
An emissary for the Argentine club is currently in Europe listening to what the wealth of interested European clubs have to offer the club. The emissary has met with Atletico Madrid who themselves have made a bid of their own. Diego Simeone’s side have made a €12 million bid but are willing to raise it if they must.
Meanwhile, the 20-year-old’s agent told Inter that it would take €15 million to take his client away from the Buenos Aires based club, despite the fact that Martinez has a €9 million release clause.
Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United are both also interested in Martinez and both watched him perform the week before Inter had scouts present.
