Chelsea fans react after being linked with 17-goal South American forward

Chelsea have been credited with reported interest in Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez – and some Blues fans on Twitter have given an extremely positive response to the transfer speculation.

According to ESPN, Chelsea have put the 23-year-old on a shortlist of potential strikers they could target this summer.

Martinez, who has scored 17 goals in 39 games across all competitions this season, is a highly-rated attacker in great form this year. 

He’s a centre-forward with brilliant pace and movement, plus he’s spent a few years now in Serie A as a consistent performer. 

His strike partnership alongside ex-Chelsea man Romelu Lukaku has been so effective for Inter this season at the San Siro, with the duo a massive reason in why the team are clear at the top of the Italian league. 

Martinez doesn’t fit into the profile of a powerhouse frontman with great strength, but he’s so intelligent with his movement around the box, and has composure in front of goal.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are convinced that the Argentina international would be a hit at Stamford Bridge. 

He’s not the physical frontman that some want, but he’s been compared to fellow countryman Sergio Aguero.

Here are some Blues fans discussing Aguero:
