Chelsea target Lautaro Martinez was the match-winner as Inter Milan booked their spot in the Champions League final with a win tonight.

Inter Milan beat rivals AC Milan 1-0 this evening at the San Siro, with Lautaro Martinez scoring the only goal with a low left-footed finish.

Inter had a two-goal advantage going into this evening’s Champions League semi-final second leg, which they followed up with a superb professional job on Tuesday night.

The Serie A giants will now face either Manchester City or Real Madrid in next month’s European final.

Any Chelsea fans that tuned in will have watched Blues loanee Romelu Lukaku in action for Inter. It’s his teammate that caught the eye of plenty of Chelsea supporters on social media, though.

Martinez, who tonight scored his 25th goal of the season across all competitions, is a player linked in the media with a potential move to Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old forward is enjoying a superb individual campaign at the San Siro and showed his quality yet again on the Champions League stage.

The Daily Mail claimed last week that Martinez is the striker Chelsea are most likely to target in the summer transfer window.
