Racing Club striker Lautaro Martínez is one of Argentina’s hottest prospects, and is destined to leave Avellaneda before long. Indeed, several offers have already been made, with Atlético Madrid having already failed in their pursuit of him. Los Colchoneros had offered a fee between €11-12 million in order to sign him in the summer.
Interestingly, reports have now surfaced in South America that Boca Juniors have come forward with a bid of around €15 million for the 20-year-old. Having already brought Carlos Tevez back from his nightmare spell in China, Los Xeneixes are putting together a strike force to be feared as they look to win the Copa Libertadores trophy for the seventh time in their history.
Meanwhile, Inter remain keen as they view him as a potential successor to Mauro Icardi should he depart for Real Madrid. The Nerazzurri are thought to be preparing an offer which exceeds that of Diego Simeone’s side.
