The Blaugrana team have recently been heavily linked with interest in Lautaro Martinez. He is highly sought after by a number of clubs but the Catalans are in the forefront of getting the Argentine’s signature.
He is considered as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez as he is ageing and they see the 22-year-old as the right man for the job.
Barcelona have agreed personal terms with Lautaro Martinez and the Argentine would join ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
According to ESPN, in order for the move to happen, the Catalans will first have to sell Philippe Coutinho.
Presently, Barcelona lack transfer funds to buy while Inter Milan are insisting on the striker’s €111m release clause to be met.
Barca also made offers to include players in a potential deal to but the Serie A giants are only interested cash.
In a total of 38 appearances, he has contributed 17 goals and 5 assists to the teams overall performance but hasn’t been able to relive his outstanding form since the restart of the league due to the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Inter Milan number 10 has been impressive for the Serie A outfit and is also looking forward to wearing the Blaugrana colours as he has also insisted that he wants to play with his fellow countryman Lionel Messi.
