Mason Mount became the latest player to leave Chelsea as he completed a move to Manchester United on Wednesday. 

The England international was announced as a Red Devils player by the club on Wednesday, signing a five-year contract with his new employers.

Several players, including midfielders Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante, have already departed the Blues this summer as owner Todd Boehly and new manager Mauricio Pochettino look to slim down the squad.

Now, tough, it appears that Pochettino could attract players to the club himself, with a Serie A star said to be keen on the idea of working with the former Tottenham Hotspur boss.

As per Football Insider, Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez is keen on the idea of joining Chelsea and working with Pochettino.

The report claims that the striker is keen to work with Pochettino, while the former Spurs manager is also said to be a huge admirer of Martinez.

The 25-year-old has been one of the most prolific forwards in the Italian top flight since joining Inter from Racing Club back in 2018.

Martinez is said to be interested in joining Chelsea

In total, he has scored 102 goals in 238 matches across all competitions for the Italian giants, as well as providing 36 assists.

Last season, the Argentina international scored 28 goals in 57 matches across all competitions, including three as he helped Inter to reach the Champions League final.

The new Chelsea boss – who officially took charge on Monday – is reportedly keen to add a pressing forward to his squad before the start of the new season.

Kai Havertz – who was primarily used as the Blues’ first choice striker last term – was sold to London rivals Arsenal last week, leaving the Blues relatively short of options in attack.

Chelsea are said to also be considering moves for several other attackers, including Dusan Vlahovic and Randal Kolo Muani, however Pochettino has been eyeing a move for Martinez since prior to his appointment as Blues boss.
