Junior Firpo is open to joining Inter as part of a deal that would send Lautaro Martinez to Barcelona according to a report from Italian news outlet CalcioMercato.com.

The Spaniard only joined Barcelona this past Summer in a circa €20 million deal from Real Betis but Barcelona are seemingly keen to offload him after he failed to live up to expectations in his first season with the club.

The Blaugrana club are said to be extremely keen on signing Lautaro from Inter but rather than pay the €111 million release clause in his contract, Barcelona wish to do a player plus cash deal for him and that player could well be Firpo, who is a four time Spain under 21 international.

Inter want to make as much money as possible from the highly rated 22-year-old striker and it is unclear what they make of the idea of acquiring Firpo as a makeweight in any potential deal.
