Barcelona ‘preparing final offer for Lautaro Martinez’

Barcelona are reportedly ‘preparing a final offer’ for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.
The 23-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for his Italian club, finding the back of the net on 21 occasions in 49 appearances in all competitions, including five goals in six Champions League outings.

Barca have been heavily linked with the Argentina international over the last few months, although the coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the Spanish club’s finances.

According to Goal, Barca are lining up a final offer for the South American as they prepare for life after Luis Suarez, who has been told that he can leave the club this summer.

Suarez is believed to be a target for Juventus, but it remains to be seen whether the Italian outfit sign the experienced forward before the transfer window closes next month.

Manchester City are also said to be admirers of Martinez, who has a contract at San Siro until June 2023, as they look for a long-term Sergio Aguero replacement.
