Luton Town linked with £10 million-rated MLS striker

Luton Town have held conversations with Inter Miami striker Josef Martinez regarding a potential move to the Premier League, as per a report from The Sun.

The 30-year-old, who can play anywhere across the frontline, is valued at around £10 million, although it is a figure that the Hatters are yet to reach in initial talks surrounding a potential transfer.

Martinez is a Venezuelan international and has netted 14 goals for his country in 63 appearances but it is his MLS record that is particularly impressive. The impressive forward has netted 104 goals in 153 matches in America's top-flight, with the vast majority of his strikes coming during his time at Atlanta United.

Proving to have European experience too, the experienced front man enjoyed spells with Swiss Super League clubs BSC Young Boys and FC Thun, whilst he also spent a couple of years with Serie A outfit Torino.

As detailed in the report from The Sun, Martinez could be tempted by a move to the Premier League, however, his Inter Miami side have just completed the signing of Lionel Messi, and he could be pushed to stay in Florida as a result.

The same report has also revealed that the Hatters remain hopeful that they can secure the signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Tom Heaton, following Asmir Begovic's expected move to QPR.

Luton, who have now headed for their annual pre-season trip to Slovenia, have welcomed three new additions thus far, with Mads Andersen, Chiedozie Ogbene and Tahith Chong all touching down at Kenilworth Road ahead of the club's first-ever Premier League campaign.
