EPL: Paul Scholes tells Man Utd to sign Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, instead of Osimhen
Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has urged the Red Devils to sign Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez instead of Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen.
Reports claim that Man United are willing to offer €100 million to sign Osimhen in the summer transfer window.
The Nigeria international has enjoyed a fruitful season at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, scoring 23 goals and registering five assists in 28 games across all competitions for Napoli.
But Scholes has now advised Erik ten Hag to target Martinez instead.
The former England midfielder felt the Argentina international fits the profile of a Ten Hag player.
“I like Lautaro Martinez at Inter Milan,” Scholes told BT Sport.
“I think he is a Ten Hag type of player; he likes a centre forward that will run about, be aggressive, get against people.”
He added, “I like United’s current options. I like [Marcus] Rashford. I like [Anthony] Martial, but Martial just can’t stay fit. So there are options out there.”
