Barcelona are targeting a swoop for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez but will have to meet the £100m release clause in his deal.

The Blaugrana are expected to complete the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this week and have also been linked with a move to bring Neymar back.

However, if a deal to re-sign the Brazilian fails to happen, which is most likely, then Barca could turn their attention to Inter’s Argentina international Martinez.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport are reporting a deal could happen for the Nerazzurri striker, but Barca will have to meet the get-out clause to have a chance of doing a deal.

Martinez excelled in Serie A last season and is also impressing at the Copa America, where he has helped his nation reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
