Real Betis ready to splash the cash on Bakambu or Martinez

Real Betis are looking at bringing in either Cedric Bakambu or Lautaro Martinez in January, according to Marca.

The Benito Villamarin club are keen to bring in an added firepower up front in their bid to push for a Champions League or Europa League spot come the end of the season.

And, vice president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer is reportedly working on a couple of names, which include former Villarreal man Bakambu and Inter Milan forward Martinez.

Bakambu departed La Liga side Villarreal last February for Chinese side Beijing Sinobo Guoan and he has since won the Chinese Cup, scoring 23 goals in 28 games.

His arrival would seemingly cost Betis after Guoan paid £35.4m for the DR Congo striker.

Martinez, who joined Italian side Inter last summer from Argentine side Racing Club – has struggled for game time with the Serie A outfit.

Whilst his appearances have mainly been from the bench, the 21-year-old has scored five goals in all competitions.

Betis, who have largely been active in the transfer market thus far in January – have also brought in Diego Lainez, an 18-year-old winger from Mexican side Club America.
