Barcelona could try and sign Lautaro Martinez from Inter this month

Barcelona could try and sign Lautaro Martinez from Inter this month according to a report from Spanish news outlet AS.

The reigning Spanish champions have been interested in the Argentine striker for some time now and it has been widely reported that they will go in for him in the Summer but Luis Suarez’s recent injury has changed things.

As per the report, Barcelona are ready to make a loan with obligation to buy offer to Inter for the 22-year-old striker but Inter are not even considering contemplating any offer.

The report goes on to state that Barcelona have also sparked an interest in signing young Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni.

The Italian youth international has found himself become a regular in recent weeks and his performances have certainly not gone unnoticed.

Barcelona recently let Jean-Clair Todibo depart and now have only Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti as centre back options.

Bastoni is understood to be on the Blaugrana’s list of potential centre backs they could sign.
