Martinez addresses Arsenal and Chelsea speculation

Lautaro Martinez has revealed his preferred destination amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Martinez has been heavily linked with a move away from Inter Milan this summer after an impressive season for the Italian club. The Argentine has managed 21 league goals this season, and his performances have attracted the interest of clubs in the Premier League.

According to Sunday World, Chelsea are showing an interest in the Inter Milan forward, and The Times have claimed their London rivals Arsenal are also in the running.

However, Martinez has revealed he would prefer to stay at the Italian club next season, as seen in the tweet below.
