Inter are determined to keep a hold of striker Lautaro Martinez for next season, with the Argentine considered an essential part of the club’s plans.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the club will look to ward off interest from Atletico Madrid unless a financially massive offer arrives for the 23-year-old.

Martinez is thought to be a major target for the Colchoneros, as they look to rebuild their attack around a major target in the striker position.

However, the Nerazzurri have no plans to sell the player, who is considered an essential part of the project with the club not wishing to attempt to rebuild their own attack under Simone Inzaghi in the absence of a player who has been pivotal to their success under Antonio Conte.

The final word will belong to the ownership should a significant offer arrive for Martinez, but on a sporting level the club’s only intention is to keep him.
