Paper Talk: Paratici leads charge for promising striker as Tottenham tussle with Prem trio; Man City make Ramos offer

Tottenham Hotspur are battling two London rivals and another Premier League side for a striker Fabio Paratici knows well, while Manchester City have made an offer for a Spain legend – all in Tuesday’s transfer gossip.


Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham and Everton are all interested in Inter Milan starlet Martin Satriano, according to the Daily Mail.

Satriano is yet to make his senior debut for Inter and there is now a chance he will never play for their first team. Despite his clear potential, the Italian champions may have to sell him due to their precarious financial situation. That could lead to a Premier League move.

According to the Mail, four English clubs are interested in the Uruguayan striker. Three are based in London – Spurs, Arsenal and West Ham – while Everton would like to take him to Merseyside.

At the age of 20, Satriano may still be a youth player but is more than ready to step up. Therefore, any of his Premier League suitors could offer him some kind of first-team role.

For example, Tottenham are braced for the potential departure of Harry Kane this summer. They would likely need a more high-profile replacement for the England captain, but Satriano could help them in the long-term.


The presence of former Juventus director Fabio Paratici at Tottenham may encourage them to speed up their pursuit. The managing director is well aware of Satriano’s exploits at Primavera 1 (under-19) level.

Satriano to solve striker issues?

But they face strong competition from Arsenal, West Ham and Everton, all of whom want to strengthen up front.

Arsenal could sell Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah this summer, so would need more depth up front. West Ham are yet to replace January sale Sebastien Haller and Everton are also looking for further competition up top.

Satriano scored 14 goals from 25 Primavera 1 games last season, also adding eight assists. His form earned him the honour of being named the best forward in the league.

Now, he wants to showcase his talents on a bigger stage, and that may be in the Premier League.
