Inigo Martinez a Barca target

Barcelona are interested in signing Real Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez, according to reports.

Marca believe that the Blaugrana are keen on bringing in the Erreala youngster, but they may have to pay €30m for the privilege.

The Basque outfit have a minimum fee release clause for the centre back, and will not let the 22-year-old leave for anything less than the stated €30m.

Martinez has risen through the ranks at Real Sociedad since his debut in 2011, and has recently been handed his Spain debut.

The youngster though, is just one of a number of defenders being targeted by Tata Martino’s men. Stories have circulated since the summer that the Camp Nou club will bid for Jan Verthonghen, Daniel Agger and Thomas Vermaelen.
