Premier League club eyeing €90 million Barcelona target


Barcelona have chased the signature of Inter forward Lautaro Martinez for the last few months, hinting at a €90 million transfer offer, as they seek a replacement for Luis Suarez.


However, with talks between Inter and Barcelona stalling, other teams are chasing the Argentine forward's signing.


One of the teams is Manchester City, possibly one of the few teams that can actually pay the extortionate transfer fee during the pandemic.


With City being way below par when it comes to their usual levels this season, they are looking for replacements to ageing players, one being Sergio Aguero.


Lautaro Martinez has a €100 million valuation on him by Inter, and with Barcelona refusing to pay the full amount, Manchester City might just swoop in and take him from in front of their eyes.


Lautaro has formed a formidable partnership with former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, with the Argentine scoring 21 goals and providing seven assists in 49 appearances in all competitions, whilst Lukaku scored 34 goals and provided six assists in 51 appearances.


Pep Guardiola is reportedly a big fan of Lautaro, but it remains to be seen whether he will be able to attract him to the Etihad, with Inter holding firmly on to him.


Manchester City have already signed Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake from Valencia and Bournemouth respectively, for a total of €68 million.
