Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez’s agent will reportedly meet with Barcelona officials in the coming days to discuss a move to Catalonia.
Barcelona were heavily linked with a move for the Argentinian international at the start of the summer, after the 23-year old netted 21 goals in all competitions last season.
However, the club missed their mid-July deadline to meet his €111m early release clause, with Antonio Conte’s side subsequently opening up talks on a new contract.
Despite appearing to have missed their chance with Martinez, the front page of Monday’s edition of Diario Sport claims La Blaugrana will make a final push to complete a deal in the region of €80m.
If the La Liga giants are unsuccessful in persuading Inter to accept a lower price for Martinez, new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman will push ahead with a move for Lyon’s Memphis Depay.
The Dutch international is yet to agree a contract extension beyond the end of next season, and he could be available for around €30m.
