Inter already have three potential replacements for Lautaro Martinez in mind according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.

The 22-year-old Argentine international striker has drawn extremely strong links to Barcelona in particular as of late.

Due to budgetary problems, Barcelona are unable to pay his €111 million release clause but are seemingly so keen on having him that they are willing to offer Inter a sum of €150 million that will be paid in several instalments.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner are the three names that Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio have in mind at the moment as players who could come in and replace Lautaro.

Aubameyang’s deal with the Gunners is up at the end of next season and if he does not sign a contract renewal between now and the Summer, he may be able to be acquired cheaper than the €70 million they wanted last Summer due to the fact clubs would be able to agree a pre-contract with him just six months down the line.

Martial is meanwhile a player that Ausilio has liked for a long time and even tried to acquire as part of a deal when United came sniffing about Ivan Perisic a few Summers ago. He would cost around €60-70 million.

As for Werner, he would cost significantly more than both Aubameyang and Martial with it expected that it will take at least €100 million to take him away from Leipzig. Inter also face competition from Bayern Munich and Liverpool.

The report from the Turin based newspaper goes on to add that Inter would not mind acquiring Antoine Griezmann as part of any potential Lautaro Martinez deal with Barcelona but the Frenchman’s salary makes things very difficult which is why the three above are currently preferred.
