Barcelona have had a change of heart and are now open to offering Arthur plus cash for Inter striker Lautaro Martinez according to a report in today’s print edition of Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.
Reports in recent weeks had suggested that Inter wanted Arthur as part of a deal for the 22-year-old Argentine striker but Barcelona deemed the Brazilian international to be non-transferable.
However, according to this report, the Blaugrana club are willing to deal the 23-year-old away which certainly goes to show just how much they want Lautaro at the club.
Barcelona would be willing to offer a cash sum between €80-90 million plus Arthur, who is valued at €60 million, meaning a deal for Lautaro could end up worth around €150 million in total.
This season former Gremio midfielder Arthur has made 23 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored four goals and provided just as many assists for his teammates.
