Despite probing the ground with regard to a potential move for Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland, Barcelona remain extremely interested in signing Inter’s Lautaro Martinez according to a report from the online edition of Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo.

The Blaugrana club have worked out that they could sign the Norwegian sensation for less than they could sign Lautaro but the 19-year-old does not convince them as much as Lautaro, who they have been courting for a considerable time, does.

Lautaro has a €111 million release clause in his current contract with Inter, which runs through to the end of the 2022/23 season.

Barcelona have long made it clear to the Nerazzurri that they do not wish to pay this and would rather do a player or players plus cash deal and Inter have told them they want at least €90 million as part of any such deal.

This season Lautaro has made 31 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 16 goals and tallied four assists.
