Inter are interested in Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti and the player has been included in the shortlist of the 3-4 players that the Nerazzurri would be happy to include in the deal for Lautaro Martinez, according to Spanish news outlet Sport.
The report details how the 26-year-old is on the list of players that Inter would be happy to be entered in the talks for 22-year-old Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez. The Blaugrana are incredibly keen to sign the player, believing that he would be the perfect replacement for the aging Luis Suarez.
Barcelona had to drop their valuation of the player, the report continues. The Blaugrana valued the 2018 World Cup winner at €50 million, which was dropped to €30 million, considered reasonable by all parties.
Barcelona cannot afford to pay Lautaro’s €111 million release clause and so have to include players in the deal to reach that number. The Milanese club have not made a final decision yet, and both Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in Umtiti as well.
