“I’m not aware” – Fabrizio Romano plays down latest Chelsea transfer rumour

Fabrizio Romano has spoken on one of the latest Chelsea transfer rumours, and he has played it down a little.

As we know, Chelsea are looking to make signings this summer, largely in goal, in midfield, and up top, but first of all they are concentrating on selling current players in their own squad to trim things down and balance up for FFP rules.

On this particular rumour, the focus is on the attack, and we aren’t yet really hearing anything solid in terms of names that Chelsea are trying for.

One name that has been linked though, is Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, but Romano has played this down.

On the prospective transfer move, Romano exclusively told GIVEMESPORT: “At the moment I’m not aware of any contact for Martinez, but let’s see what’s going to happen in the conversations between Inter Milan and Chelsea for Lukaku this month when they speak about that. But at the moment, with Martinez and Chelsea, there is still nothing concrete.”

Personally I think that whilst Martinez is a great player, he isn’t really the ideal profile of a 9 that Chelsea need and should be looking at this summer. I can’t see anything happening with this rumour anyway to be honest.
