Report: Chelsea battling five clubs for 20-year-old talent who's been compared to Lewandoski

Chelsea have once again been linked to Inter Milan starlet Martin Satriano, as per the Daily Mail.

Satriano was reportedly being looked at by the Blues back in February (Daily Mail), an interest that seemingly hasn’t disappeared.

The 20-year-old is on fire this season with Inter, scoring eight goals in 18 games.

He is yet to break into Antonio Conte’s side, but has sat on the first-team bench for three Serie A matches in 2020/21.

Nick Maytum, Satriano’s agent, didn’t help to play down the hype when speaking to about his client.

Maytum said: “Everyone says he (Satriano) is the new (Zlatan) Ibra for his physique and his technique. 

“But I say he plays in a similar way to (Robert) Lewandowski. His best skills are strength and technique”.

Being compared against two of the greatest strikers to grace the modern game certainly brings a degree of pressure.

But Satriano is currently living up to his legacy and it may not be too long before his presence graces the Premier League.
