Inter remain firm in their demands to Barcelona for Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the Nerazzurri want the Blaugrana to either pay the 22-year-old’s €111 million release clause or to pay €90 million and include either Nelson Semedo or Junior Firpo in the deal.

Both clubs appreciate that it would be better to close out the deal as soon as possible, as it would give the Nerazzurri sufficient time to reinvest the earnings into their squad and find a replacement, especially important considering the damaged transfer market due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Barcelona aren’t particularly interested in signing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, the report continues. The alleged interest has simply been a way to put pressure on the Nerazzurri in the Lautaro negotiations, but regardless Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has stayed strong and true to his initial demands.
