Barcelona are trying to insert Samuel Umtiti into a deal for Inter striker Lautaro Martinez at all costs according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset which was aired a short time ago.

Talks between the two clubs over the highly rated 22-year-old are currently at a standstill with the clubs having been unable to come to an agreement over a counterpart or possible counterparts to include into any deal for the Argentine international.

Arthur is more open to leaving the Catalonia based club but appears more inclined to join Inter’s arch rivals Juventus instead whilst a number of other clubs are keen on signing Nelson Semedo.

Inter like young full back Junior Firpo but the report goes on to explain that Barcelona are doing all they can to include 2018 World Cup winner Umtiti into a deal but Inter manager Antonio Conte and the management are perplexed by this.
