Barcelona could insert Emerson Royal into negotiations with Inter over Lautaro Martinez according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.

The Brazilian full back, who has been dubbed the new Maicon in his homeland, is currently out on loan at Real Betis until the end of next season but Barcelona could bring him back early and use him in a deal for Lautaro, who is, as per some reports, their number one transfer target ahead of the Summer transfer window.

Emerson aside, the report goes on to state that Arturo Vidal or Carles Alena could be included in a deal for Lautaro, who has a €111 million release clause in his current contract, something Barcelona are unwilling to pay.

Barcelona would prefer to do a deal on a player(s) plus cash basis and some reports have suggested Inter would be open to such a deal but only if the cash element is at least €90 million.
